Canyolands National Park

This is a tour of Chestler Park and Virginia Park, ¬†two of the Needles District’s most scenic grasslands. Chestler Park is an example of a winter-grazed Colorado Plateau Grassland while Virginia Park is unique in that it was never grazed by domestic livestock. Virginia Park is closed to the public because of its value for research on biological soil crusts and ecosystem processes on the Colorado Plateau.
