Nice park and worth seeing. I would not plan a trip around it. Can see everything in 10 minutes. Might be a good place to stop and have a quick bite to eat.

The park is directly on the Uncomphagre River. A beautiful setting. If you are looking for a nice place to just chill for a bit - stop there. It isn't much for hiking unless you just want a stroll along the river. Worth a look-see.

In spring there are blubirds, then eagles and Canada geese. In winter, the deer are beautiful. A blessing with a breath-taking view.

The park is always kept in priistine condition clean and extremely pleasant to have an outdoor winter picnic or just to be peaceful by the river that... More

Only 1 1/2 miles from Ridgeway. Huge eagle statue attached to a large rock, impressive. Lovely how the place was covered with small stacks of rocks done by people that had visited the place. We placed our own. Serene, peaceful place.

Only a mile and a half north of Ridgway this park and eagle statue is a must for anyone close to Ridgway. The statue and poem will take your breath away. Visit on a sunny blue sky day and you may Not want to leave. Statue is very short walk from parking area.
