Two State Parks in your Backyard

One of the reasons lots in Solstice are in such high demand is due to its proximity to two state parks. With Chatfield State Park and Roxborough State Park practically neighbors to your home, adventure is just moments away.

Chatfield State Park

Chatfield State Park offers an abundance of outdoor activities set against the backdrop of the magnificent Rocky Mountains. Here's what you can look forward to at this 3,895-acre park:

  • Water Sports: With Chatfield Reservoir at its heart, the park is a haven for water enthusiasts. From sailing to fishing and paddleboarding, the cool waters provide a refreshing respite on warm Colorado days.
  • Trails: Miles of trails meander through the park, welcoming hikers, bikers, and horseback riders. Whether you're seeking a leisurely stroll or a heart-pumping ride, there's a path that fits your pace. These trails also connect to the 71-mile High Line Canal trail, which runs from Waterton Canyon all the way to the airport.
  • Camping: Offering nearly 200 campsites, Chatfield is a fantastic spot for a night under the stars. Whether you're in an RV or a tent, camping here brings you closer to nature.
  • Model Airplane Flying: Chatfield also offers a unique model airline flying field with two landing strips.

Roxborough State Park

Drive about 10 minutes southwest of Solstice, and you'll find yourself in the midst of Roxborough State Park's stunning red rock formations. Here's what sets Roxborough apart:

  • Dramatic Landscapes: Known for its dramatic red sandstone spires, Roxborough is a geological marvel. The park is a designated National Natural Landmark, showcasing over 300 million years of history carved into stone.
  • Wildlife Viewing: As you wander through Roxborough, keep your eyes peeled for wildlife, including coyotes, mule deer, and a variety of bird species. 
  • Hiking: Try Fountain Valley Trail for an easy, scenic loop, or challenge yourself with the Carpenter Peak Trail, culminating in breathtaking panoramic views.

For those considering a move to Solstice or current residents looking to tap into the great outdoors, these state parks enhance the quality of life by offering a variety of recreational opportunities within minutes of your doorstep. They represent Colorado's commitment to preserving natural wonders while providing spaces for people to play, relax, and learn.
