The quiet intermontane valley of South Park is well known for its scenic views and abundant wildlife. Rolling grasslands give way to towering subalpine forests, and it’s as common to see graceful herds of Pronghorn antelope as it is to see grazing cattle and buffalo. Throughout the valley, various creeks and springs feed into the serpentine South Platte river. Surrounded by the Mosquito Range, Park Range, Tarryall Mountains, Puma Hills, Black and Thirtynine Mile Mountains, the awe-inspiring views in South Park epitomize Colorado’s majestic and vulnerable iconic landscapes.
