Colorado's newest state park opened to the public on May 18, 2013. The park is located approximately 40 miles southwest of downtown Denver, north of US Highway 285 and about six miles west of Conifer. The Park sits divided between Park and Jefferson counties, in Pine, Colorado. From high grassy meadows at 8,100 feet to soaring granite cliffs over 10,000 feet, Staunton State Park's varied geology, soils, water features, and climate support rare and unexpected plant communities and a rich diversity of wildlife and provide a myriad of outdoor recreation opportunities.

Starts off a wide trail, not many people where on it. Goes from open area to heavily wooded. It's relatively easy at first then gets a slight incline on the way up to the Old Mill. Well marked trail. The outlook is pretty once you get the the peak. We saw 4 deer on the way up, also saw a mole rodent. There is a little bridge we crossed that was over a small brook.

There are numerous hikes here so you have options depending on what you want to see and what you're up for. $7 entrance fee, they provide a map, we saw numerous staff offering assistance and NO DOG POOP/BAGS along the trail!

We hiked up to a few scenic viewpoints then to the Old Mill then down the trail to the Old Mill. Strenuous and further than we'd planned but pretty. Lots of mountain bikers and a few horses but everyone was courteous and shared the trail.
