Crossroads Through Time Heritage Park
Pueblo Community College – Fremont Campus
Crossroads Through Time Heritage Park provides a quality educational experience for all ages by encouraging an understanding and appreciation for Fremont County’s rich geological, paleontological and historical heritage. Its location is literally a crossroads where the stories of the planet and its inhabitants intersect – tying together the deep-time geological past to the history of the region’s people and places.
On the Geology Time Trail, where one-foot equals one-million years, examples of the area’s geologic past can be seen. The People & Places Trail presents information on the settlement of Fremont County, its early occupants and its history.
The initial idea of creating a Heritage Park here was the result of discussions between PCC Fremont Campus faculty, staff and students joined by community members interested in using this opportunity to help interpret Fremont County’s rich heritage. This all-volunteer effort, supported by generous donations of funds by several organizations, has resulted in significant progress to date. Scroll down for further information.

This is not just trails, but an array of places to sit and reflect on this most interesting setting and if interested, the visitor can be a participant, not just be an observer. Projects will create various opportunities for the local community to provide geologic and historic display pieces, ideas, and support. Located at the western gateway to the city, Crossroads Through Time Heritage Park epitomizes the unity of the faculty, the students, and the Fremont Campus of Pueblo Community College with the community, the region and our heritage.
Crossroads Through Time Heritage Park has two major sections: a Geology Time Trail, and a People and Places (History) Trail. By including educational, cultural, and artistic displays, each will augment campus activities, encourage public visitation, and enhance local lifestyle. From the Geology Time Trail, multiple geologic rock formations are visible in all directions It is also in close proximity to some for the greatest paleontological discoveries and excavations made in the late 1800s up to today. The People and Places Trail begins at a time thousands of years ago with the Pre-Clovis/Paleo-Indians and runs to present time.
