Trinidad is located in south-central Colorado’s Las Animas County. Trinidad is a town of about 10,000 residents that lies along the course of the historic Santa Fe Trail. It is just off Interstate 25, not far from the border with New Mexico to the south. It’s in a particularly rural part of the state that’s most well-known for its national parks and forests and abundant historic sites. From Denver, Trinidad is about a four-hour drive. It’s a popular destination for backpackers and all-around lovers of the great outdoors. The following are just a few of the places to visit in the area.
Trinidad Lake State Park. The park’s lake is particularly popular with anglers due to its variety of game fish, including large and smallmouth bass, catfish, walleye, and trout. Though many visitors choose to fish when the weather is warm and sunny, the fish are often most active during windy, cold, and overcast days, especially when the barometer is falling. You’ll want to remember to pick up a fishing license before heading out.
Simpson’s Rest. The two cities of Trinidad, Colorado, and Hollywood, California share similar iconic signs on mountains that overlook their respective downtown areas. The Trinidad sign is perched atop a craggy bluff in a residential area. For those who’d like to get to the top, there’s an access road that isn’t paved, but it’s easily passable if taken slowly. From the lofty vantage point, visitors will have amazingly panoramic views of the town and countryside, but the road is only open during daylight hours and is gated from sunset to sunrise.
San Isabel National Forest. The San Isabel National Forest is comprised of more than one million acres that are spread over some diverse landscapes, offering visitors a variety of year-round activity options. The forest is big with campers and backcountry backpackers intent on spending a few nights in the wild, and there are more than 40 individual campgrounds to accommodate them. San Isabel includes more than 700 miles of trails and more than a dozen mountains that tower 14,000 feet over the ground below.
