Florissant Fossil Beds Monument
Just west of Colorado Springs, the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument intrigues visitors of all ages as one of the world's most unique fossil deposits.
The monument is just a short drive from the Denver metro area, lending to a favorable and scenic location near Pike National Forest.
Once there, guests can stop by the visitor center for plenty of information on taking guided tours and attending ranger-led talks, viewing unique exhibits and fossil displays, and exploring the petrified redwood tree stumps.
Moreover, the Ponderosa Loop Trail and Petrified Forest Trail provide further exploration with over 14 miles of hiking trails.
