Get ready to explore
Cheyenne Mountain State Park has been a work in progress for a long time. Now, excited members of the park's Friends group are saying the park will open this fall. For most of its construction phase, there was no main entrance. Now, there's a road to the park, directly across from Fort Carson's main gate.
The park isn't open to the public yet, but the Friends have several hikes and activities planned there for those who can't wait to get in. These photos were taken last summer and fall in the park, which is home to wild turkeys, bears, mountain lions, deer, lizards, rattlesnakes and prairie dogs.
