  • We enjoyed our walk through petrified remains of a forest that once was. The stumps are amazing and there is lots of signage along the trail. The main loop is an easy walk. The visitor’s center...

  • THE friendliest and nicest staff I have ever encountered at a visitor center. Very knowledgeable! The exhibits in the little exhibit space were great and would definitely recommend the short video about the formation of the area because it answers a lot of questions you may have. Beautiful park!
  • How was Florissant Fossil Beds N.P.? Amazing. This small park hosts some amazing fossilized trees - they are huge. Totally impressive! The walk through the park is an easy mile on a crushed granite path. It is gorgeous in Florissant, so all of this surrounded by mountains. Saw some wildlife on my walk through the park: a badger was sunning himself off in the grass and seemed to be enjoying himself. Great experience! Tip: vets, military, and seniors can get in for free. Recommend to: geologists, fossil and rock hounds, and people who love natural history and science
