The county comprises 1628 square miles and elevations range from 7,800 feet to 13,000 feet above sea level. Jackson County is officially designated a “Frontier” community being the fourth-least densely populated of 64 Colorado counties, averaging less than one person per square mile. The town of Walden, with 600 residents, is the county seat and the only incorporated municipality in the county and is located at least 60 miles from any sizeable neighboring town.
Jackson County is home to the headwaters of the North Platte River and is known as the Moose Viewing Capital of Colorado. Highway 14 runs between Fort Collins and Walden along the Cache La Poudre Scenic Byway. 1,600 square miles of untouched mountain scenery and 65% public lands, provides abundant opportunities for all outdoor enthusiasts. The economy of Jackson County is agriculturally based along with a strong outdoor recreation component.
Large ranches dominate the agricultural landscape alongside expanding oil and gas development and remnants of a once prosperous timber industry. We have a thriving cattle industry and ranches that produce some of the largest per acre quantity and highest quality grass hay in Colorado. During the past couple of decades, like other agricultural communities, many of our family owned ranches have sold to larger corporate businesses and this has notably changed the social and economic dynamics of Jackson County.
The 2016 census estimates note our Median Household Income of $41,240; ranking 44th compared to other Colorado counties. Our North Park School District is among Colorado’s smallest 36 schools with a 2016 Pre-K to 12th grade student membership of 192. 51% of these students were eligible for the free and reduced lunch program. Despite our size and economic status, the school district has been recognized as Accredited with Distinction several times with the high school recently receiving the Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Award.
