I used the track chair today for my first time! It was so awesome! I can’t wait to come back and do it again! Thank you to volunteers Mike & Peyton for showing me how to do it!

"It was such a liberating day at Staunton State Park - Colorado Parks and Wildlife TODAY! You can't sabotage your potential because you feel less physical, the only limitations you have are the limitations you allow.
My son was able to enjoy our first hike ever... Together!!! He has been raising funds in our neighborhood with a #lemonade stand for me to buy an Action Trackchair and his last wish of the summer to go hiking and I knew of no better opportunity then here!
Thanks to ALL the dedicated and awesome park volunteers and staff for the enjoyment of the beautiful park. The staff, volunteers, and leadership is beyond amazing and this job isn't just a passion, this is what makes their heart sing. THEY MADE MY HEART SING TODAY! Thank you

STAUNTON STATE PARK, Colo. — Enjoying the outdoors is why many people come to Colorado — whether it be to live or for vacation. But getting outdoors in the first place can be tough some because of their age or disabilities, which is why Staunton State Park in Conifer has a program that changes all that, and it's becoming quite the draw.
“Super busy. Reservations all the way out. First month, they fill up for the whole summer. People are absolutely loving it,” said Colorado Parks and Wildlife's Annie Thran.
The park has three chairs and just raised enough to buy a fourth in order to provide more families, like the Poores, special opportunities in the wilderness.
