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.

Just north of Ridgway is this Memorial Park with a spectacular eagle sculpture. This sculpture is very impressive and is well worth seeing if you're in the area and have the time. Just look for the signs on the highway and it's easily accessible.

We were on our way to Ouray from Black Canyon National Park and decided to make a stop here. The Memorial is so well done and definitely worth the stop, even if only to come look at the Eagle Sculpture that they have here. Get out and stretch your legs and give this a look. You won't be disappointed.

We were with a local so they knew to stop. It would be easy to miss this on your drive up the Million Dollar Highway! We were headed from Ouray. STOP. It will be worth it. Beautiful space. Peaceful. The local I was with has hiked all over the sorrounding mountains and had no idea there were trails here to... More

This park is fantastic. Bring a picnic, go fishing, tubing, or mountain biking on the single track system that leaves from the parking lot.
