Rocky Mountain Arsenal Refuge photos April 26, 2014

Needing to get outdoors, I decided to do something different and kill a few hours since I havent been on a trail for a few weeks. I went to hike and explore just outside of Denver at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge. 15000 acres where wildlife are free to thrive just 20 minutes from downtown Denver. There are 10 miles of trails to hike, all of them easy hikes on dirt trails. In some areas some of the trails were washed away from the flooding rains from last September throughout the state, they are being repaired and there are new trails being constructed as well. The refuge offers free 2 hour bus tours with reservations. The bald eagle can be seen here and I was told the best time of year to see them is in the winter. Coyotes, deer and other animals all call the Arsenal home.

The Arsenal is managed by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and is a part of the National Wildlife Refuge System.
