Location:  Four Mile Scenic Park is located on CR 1 between Florissant and Cripple Creek.  On HWY 24 in Florissant, go east on County Road 1 approximately 9 miles to the intersection of CR 1 and CR 11.  Park is on the southeast corner.

Four Mile park consists of 6.9 acres at the junction of Teller County Road #1 and Road #11 in SW Teller County.  The park, perfectly located on the Gold Belt National Byway, features picnic areas and a beautiful pedestrian bridge over historic Hay Creek.  Information and graphic interpretation focus on the rich agricultural history of the area.  The park is open throughout the year, and provides the perfect spot for a picnic.
