The Trails

Explore Wild Colorado!

The Colorado Birding Trail links outdoor recreation sites, both public and private, into a network through a designated driving route. There are 20 trails on the Eastern Plains containing a variety of sites where you can view watchable wildlife. Some trails include hiking or walking paths where you can observe different wildlife and scenery. Start your adventure today and explore wild Colorado!

UPDATE: A valid hunting or fishing license is required for everyone 18 or older accessing any state wildlife area. Beginning May 1, 2021, a valid hunting or fishing license OR SWA pass is required for everyone 16 or older accessing any state wildlife area.

Please note: As of April 2021, We have a group of dedicated volunteers currently updating the sites listed on the Colorado Birding Trail. Some private lands or bird tours may no longer exist or be open to the public, so be sure to check on the site/event before heading out.
