Staunton’s award winning track-chair program is looking to add volunteers. Track-chair volunteer training begins in April.

Our Track-Chair Team makes previously challenging outdoor activities a reality for members of the public with mobility impairments. We have multiple Track-Chairs and trails designated for the program, which is available free of charge to visitors. These hikes are available every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June through October.

As a volunteer, you will accompany our program participants and their guests, ensuring they have a enjoyable and safe trip. Trips can run between 2-5 hours and range from 2.5 miles to 5 miles. You can volunteer for as many (or as few) hikes as your schedule permits.

​Volunteers are required to go through a brief Track-Chair familiarization with our Track-Chair​ Program Manager. To learn more about how you can help make Staunton State Park accessible to all of our guests, please contact our program manager by registering via this link: cpw.state.co.us/placestogo/parks/Staunto...Chair-Volunteer.aspx

"Therapy for the soul"...news that'll warm your heart! Not long after we got the Staunton Track Chair Program off the ground, the park upgraded their fishing pier at Davis Ponds to be ADA compliant so our visitors with disabilities could hike and fish!

Reservations are still being taken for the Track Chair Program, book here.

"PINE, Colo. (CBS4) – Staunton State Park is named after two Denver doctors from the early 1900s. Their healing legacy lives on at what’s now one of the most accessible state parks in Colorado.

It’s the perfect place for Craig Hospital to host its first outpatient camping trip in Pine. Campers were able to take part in activities like hiking, fishing and archery.

Staunton State Park’s Track-Chair program makes trails accessible for those who don’t have the mobility on their own. The all-terrain, motorized wheel chairs help outpatients like Luna navigate the paths he once hiked on foot."

What a fantastic article, thank you Olivia Baud for all your time and effort on writing this and for visiting Staunton State Park - Colorado Parks and Wildlife to learn more! We're very proud of our park's groundbreaking accessibility program and grateful to Ted Hammond, Mark Madsen, Mark's family and friends, and Craig Hospital for kicking it off, to all the generous souls who have volunteered their time and/or donated money to make it happen, and Staunton State Park's staff and Colorado Parks and Wildlife's leaders, for without their support, this couldn't exist.

Thank you!!!

It was a beautiful, bluebird day when I drove up to Staunton State Park on August 27th. The air was crisp and cool, atypical given the hot summer weeks we had been experiencing this year. Distinctive, too, were the reasons for my park visit. I was there to discover an inspiring program, the first of its kind in Colorado when it was founded in 2017. Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Track-Chair Program, run by more than 80 dedicated volunteers and completely funded by donations raised by the Friends of Staunton State Park, provides opportunities for people with disabilities to live life outside and to share outdoor experiences with friends and family.

The day before, Craig Hospital had brought two of its outpatients, Chris Luna and Nash Murath, to camp overnight at Staunton for the first time. Now, the morning after, they had several other exciting activities lined up: hitting the Davis Ponds Trail, fishing at Davis Pond, discovering the historical buildings and artifacts on the Staunton Ranch Trail, and archery after lunch.

Mark IV arrived last Saturday and our President, Wayne Parkinson, handed the check to BJ, the Action Trackchair Representative. The Staunton Track Chair Program Coordinator, Natalie, and some volunteers kindly posed for a photo before the chair went right out on its first hike. This new chair with the suspension rides like a dream so we're excited to have this upgraded chair in our possession for our guests with disabilities. Our next goal will be to raise money to replace our older chairs.

Whoo hoo! Thank you again to all of you who helped make this happen!
