Visit Creede for the Afternoon
Creede is best known for two things: silver mining and theatre. Get a taste of both in an afternoon: Become a miner for a few hours in the Underground Mining Museum. Enter mine shafts bored into the cliff face,  wander through tunnels mined from solid rock, and visit with former hard-rock miners! Next, visit the Creede Repertory Theatre for an award-winning show. Specifically look for an adventurous and entertaining show for kids! Visit www.creede.com for more info.

LucyBDay201215Go Horseback Riding
Imagine you are a child from the Ute Tribe: you have just traded the Spaniards for your first horse and now venture out to explore the area’s backcountry. Many of the hunting and traveling trails used by the natives are still used today, and for the most part offer the same view from the saddle you would have seen hundreds of years ago! Contact a local guest ranch for a full or half day guided trip.

Hike a Trail, any Trail
We suggest the 1/2 mile hike from Million Reservoir, a hike around Big Meadows Reservoir (2 miles), or a hike to the Largest Fir Tree in the Rio Grande Forest (1/3 mile). See this page for more information about these hikes!

Sit around a Campfire at Tucker Ponds
Roast a marshmallow, tell a ghost story, or marvel at the vast expanse of stars overhead.

Ice Skate in Town
Check out a pair of skates at the Visitor Center and skate in our parking lot mid-December through March. Join a pick-up hockey game organized by locals.
