Florissant, Colorado
Florissant, Colorado

   Florissant, Colorado is just west of Divide and just east of Lake George, and is located in both Teller and Park Counties. A small mountain community, there is a new library and multiple places to hike and enjoy the beauty of the area.

    One of the most famous landmarks in the area is the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument. This is an area of rolling, grassy hills and ridges covered with ponderosa pine, douglas fir, Colorado blue spruce and aspens. This monument has one of the largest concentrations of plant and insect fossils in North America. You can often see coyotes, badgers, rabbits, porcupines, mule deer, elk and pronghorn.

    Scientists from around the world visit annually, conducting research and studying the area. Workshops, classes and guided hikes are available during the summer months. Miles of hiking and snowshoeing in the winter, along with beautiful scenery of open meadows, forests and enormous rock formations, make this a recreational delight.

    If you are interested in the history of the area, check out the Pikes Peak Historical Society, a non-profit corporation which was created to preserve the history of the area and to educate the public regarding the historical legacy of this special place. PPHS is funded solely through memberships and donations and is supported by volunteers. One of their two museums is located in Florissant, is open year-round and admission is FREE.
