Coloradans can get a glimpse of Colorado’s newest park this weekend when Fishers Peak State Park opens following a ribbon cutting on Friday by Gov. Jared Polis. Although the new park eventually will encompass 19,200 acres (30 square miles), only 250 acres will open this weekend. Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials wanted to give the public the opportunity to get a sense of the hiking, hunting and wildlife opportunities the park offer when fully open. The Fishers Peak mountain rises to 9,633 feet and is located six miles southeast of Trinidad and seven miles north of the New Mexico border. According to a CPW journal post written by Fishers Peak/Trinidad Lake Park manager Crystal Dreiling, hiking options will be limited this weekend to what she called the “Sneak peek area,” but the short First Look Trail will offer “spectacular” views of Fishers Peak.
