Backpacking unburned area in Henry Coe State Park

Last wednesday I did an overnight at Henry Coe State Park. I wanted to replace a few Geocaches and give my new 0F degree sleeping bag another test. I also thought the park would not be fully open for months. It opened a few days later!

Lotsa pig damage, under every oak tree!
Big fields of Shooting Stars between Willson Peak and Grizzly Gulch
Just above Willson Camp, where I stayed that night

That’s it! Park is fully opened. Enjoy it before it gets hot! (Parking will be an issue on weekends.)

    Thanks for keeping us informed! We moved to Fruita, CO last August so we’ll be exploring the Rockies this summer and mountain biking throughout the high desert of CO, UT, and AZ for a few years at least. – Jim and Katya Preston

    Yes, much thanks for this post! I was wondering if the park was open for visitors so your post brings much joy. In addition, I’m pleased to see Coe Backcountry Weekend is set for April 23-25, 2021 with Covid-19 limitations.
