Round Mountain, at elevation 8,500 feet, sits near Blue Mountain, Stoll Mountain and Martland Peak. Campsites are widely spaced in woods of ponderosa pine and young aspen. The high altitude creates mild summer days and chilly nights. Aspen trees create a beautiful sunny yellow hue in fall.
Interesting wild inhabitants of the area include porcupines, mule deer, beavers and chipmunks. At night, the area makes for incredible stargazing.
Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, about a 15 minute drive from Round Hill, boasts one of the richest and most diverse fossil deposits in the world. Petrified redwood stumps up to 14 feet wide and thousands of detailed fossils of insects and plants reveal the story of a very different, prehistoric Colorado.
