On the western slope of the Rockies, halfway between Denver and Grand Junction, lies one of Colorado’s best kept secrets – a hidden gem with pristine and abundant access to epic and nearly untouched mountain biking, trail running and hiking, year-round events and Gold Medal fly fishing. Surrounded by BLM, State Park and Open Space lands, Eagle is your springboard for adventure.
The Eagle area has a rich history associated with all that makes the West the West. Native American culture, mining, agriculture, ranching and recreation all have played important roles in Eagle’s past. Get started on a historic tour of Eagle at the Chambers Park Local Historical and Visitor’s Center then take a self-guided walking tour of our historic buildings on Broadway.
