Explore the most popular trails in Stagecoach State Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Stagecoach State Park sets the stage for great recreation in the lush Yampa Valley by Steamboat Springs. Vistas and views are backdrops to the 780-acre reservoir providing renown lake and river fishing. A year-round destination, the park also makes a great base to explore the variety of sports and attractions of the area. An array of activities await with boating, fishing, hiking, picnicking and camping. Winter is especially quiet, offering trails for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing to those seeking a less commercial experience. In summer, water sports enthusiasts enjoy the many ways to recreate at the lake. Off-season and weekday visits are wonderfully serene, providing great opportunities to take pleasure in the land, water and nature without the crowds. Cabin fever in the winter can be relieved by camping in one of the four electrical sites maintained just for winter camping. Stagecoach State Park is a great place to hold base camp when exploring the many outdoor opportunities around the park such as the Flattops Wilderness Area and Sarvis Creek Wilderness Area.

We only did the trek between the boat launch and the dam but it was such a relaxing walk and the lake views were spectacular. It was perfect for mindfulness walking practice. So peaceful.

Go early because there is really no shad and it was a warm day. Good dirt road with small hills and beautiful reservoir to run by. The dam was cool to walk over and there were lots of fly fishermen/women out enjoying the beautiful day. It was not a busy trail maybe due to the state park fee of $7 to get in...

Awesome spring trail for conditioning. Sometimes bikers can’t see us coming but overall a good trail.
