Collegiate Peaks and Historic Byway

Central Colorado Conservancy works in partnership with the Chaffee County Heritage Area and GARNA on protecting the resource values of the Byway and the scenic vistas along the route.

The Conservancy ranked criteria for lands along the Byway to help us determine priorities. As part of this effort an interactive map was created for the public to better understand these values.
