This series of trails that connect together to make a 4-mile loop through Mancos State Park make a great morning or afternoon hike. Mancos State Park is known more for the boating opportunities it offers, but many of the locals know how great the hiking and cross-country skiing can be as well. The network of trails even offers access to the Colorado Trail. The great thing about Mancos State Park is that it is home to many of the outdoor recreation activities that surround it. The park is home to the Jackson Gulch Reservoir, which is the water source for Mesa Verde and the Mancos Valley. Kayaking, canoeing, and limited motorized boating are all allowed on the 216 surface acres of water. The reservoir also provides great fishing, including yellow perch and rainbow trout.
