Located in the scenic north central portion of Colorado, North Park/Jackson County offers a wide range of outdoor recreation opportunities in spectacular a mountain setting.Terrain varies from 12,000 feet glacier carved peaks to lush river valleys, even sand dunes. No matter the season North Park has a unique natural beauty and down-home western atmosphere. If you're looking for an undiscovered alpine area, look no more. Over half of North Park/Jackson County is national and state forests, parks and wildlife refuges where you will discover unique and plentiful wildlife, fields of wildflowers. Dotted through out are working cattle ranches and sweet smelling native hay. Ghost towns dating from turn of the century mining days can be reached by car. Lakes and streams provide balm to a fishermans heart. Many areas are available for horse trail rides, hiking, ATV and cycling.

A rural community must rely on its own ingenuity. Every season has some must do activities sponsored by community volunteers. Winter provides the Gould ski scramble, snowmobile poker run (hosting disabled veterns), fishing derbys and Frosty Pines golf tourny. Spring brings guided Sage Grouse lek tours that are a special treat to birders. Summer finds North Park Pioneer reunion, Never Summer Rodeo, North Park Day street fair, Motorcycle poker run and enduro, not to be missed first weekend in Aug is Sky's the Limit hot air balloons, several Ride in the Park car rallys come to town including Viper club, BMW, Antique. Peddling abounds and touring bicycle events are scheduled through out the summer. Fall is time for the North Park Fair, Ranch Rodeo, Harvest Craft Festival.
