Route Description for Davis Ponds Trail
Family-friendly, scenic, and accessible—the Davis Ponds Hike is an amazing nature trail in the Staunton State Park. This path will appease the whole family, and your little ones will blow off some steam as they explore all that the Colorado wilderness has to offer. Located within a State Park, visitors will have to purchase a parking pass at the gateway. This trail is very popular, and rightfully so, but consider a weekday excursion into nature if you wish to avoid crowds.
Depart from the trailhead and head right onto the Davis Ponds Trail. Hike along the path, ignoring intersecting and merging branches of the trail. Trek along the route until you meet the Davis Ponds. Explore the water pools and the stunning mountainous scenery that sits in the background. Keep an eye out for deer and moose in the grassy plains. Loop around, heading down the southeast side of the trail and through the sparse tree coverage. Meander the trail, and it will eventually guide you around another parking lot before delivering you back to your car.
This stunning loop is short and sweet, but several paths travel within the loop. If you and your party still have some gas in the tank, further explore the Davis Ponds network of trails before heading back to the parking lot.
