 Wildlife

Bird Landing on Water

Aurora Reservoir is a great place to view waterbirds including gulls, geese, grebes, ducks, herons and plovers. Anglers test the water for trout, perch, wipers, walleye and catfish. Kids love the crawdads and other aquatic critters!

Trails

The surrounding area features 8.5 miles of soft and hard surface biking and walking trails that traverse gentle hills and provide views of the reservoir, open prairie and the front range mountains.
