A look at Stagecoach State Park near Yampa:

Description: Nestled along a 3-mile reservoir in the flourishing Yampa Valley, the park is popular among water sports enthusiasts. The lake has a full-service marina and areas designated for the wakeless bunch. About 8 miles of trails braid through Stagecoach, with two gravel pathways reserved for hikers.

Activities: Boating, sailing, jet skiing, paddle sports, swimming, hiking, biking, horseback riders, fishing, hunting, camping, cross-country skiing/snowshoeing

Wildlife: Elk, mule deer, fox, coyotes, badgers and beavers; bald eagles, American white pelicans, white-faced ibis, eurasian coots, great blue herons, yellow warbler and goshawks among birds.
