Yampa River State Park Hiking Activities

Hiking - 11/29/2007
At the Headquarters Campground, walkers can enjoy a mile of nature trail to work the kinks out from the long day?s drive. The primary hiking opportunity is at many of the river access sites along the river. Hiking in the area is primarily on BLM lands and offers a diverse experience for all levels and interests. With the high-desert environment, your hikes can offer some of the most scenic views found anywhere. Areas like Duffy Mt., Juniper Canyon and Cross Mountain have some excellent hiking territory. See the Yampa River Brochure and map and the River Access Points page for more information.
