The Trust from Public Land and the Nature Conservancy last year pledged the $25 million needed to buy the property, after the state put down an initial $14.5 million.

Fishers Peak is Colorado’s 42nd state park and the second largest. The largest in the state is Forest State Park in the Medicine Bow Range of Northern Colorado.
