There are more than 50,000 recorded prehistoric sites on Colorado's public lands. In addition, there are numerous nationally significant historic sites that represent mining, transportation, and western settlement. Colorado has six Adventures in the Past sites/tours available to the public. This webpage serves as a portal to BLM Colorado’s cultural resources.
