Welcome to Walden Circa 2007

Walden, the "Moose Viewing Capital of Colorado", is a recreational and natural resource gem, located in the pristine mountains of North Park.

Abundant wildlife, fishing, hiking and x-country trails, snowmobiling and the northern sand dunes are all in the backyard.

The real west lives here. Old time patterns in ranching, logging, and mining mix with modern practices.

Come visit where there is room to roam. 


Welcome to Walden.


Diverse Year-round Outdoor Recreation

Located in the scenic north central portion of Colorado, North Park and Jackson County offer a wide range of outdoor recreation opportunities in spectacular mountain settings. Terrain varies from 12,000 feet glacier carved peaks to lush river valleys, even sand dunes. Be it summer, fall or winter you'll find that North Park has a unique natural beauty and a down-home western atmosphere. If you are looking for an undiscovered alpine recreation are to spend a few hours or a week, North Park is the place for you. Modestly priced accommodations and tourists services are open all year.

Abundant Snow and Winter Activities

   North Park's mountain peaks and valleys receive some of the greatest annual snowfalls in Colorado. Many locations average over 300 inches per year! Plowed state and federal highways provide easy access to North Park's miles of maintained snowmobile and cross-country skiing trails. Backcountry enthusiasts find a trackless deep powder wilderness. Poker Run, North Park Ice Fishing Contest or the Gould Ski Scramble provide plenty of things to do and see all winter.


AN ASIDE: This is is simply beautiful, with a down home western atmosphere. I took a business/leisure trip out there recently and fell in love with the place and the lifestyle. I happen to work for a company that provides expert NYC carpet cleaning services in Manhattan, so my home is a far cry from this wilderness area. Also my work involves a very demanding clientele due to the fact that many of their carpets are either heirloom or collectible quality rugs. So getting away to this place with clean air and a lot of peace and quiet is just what I needed. One of our wealthy clients owns a home here and suggested I come visit in the winter for some snowboarding and cross country skiing. I spent the week being shown the scenic north central portion of Colorado that includes North Park and Jackson County. The deep powder I expereinced was out of this world. So if you have the chance to visit this part of Colorado, go for it.
