Fort St. Vrain Fort was built in the early 1800s near the present-day location of the town of Platteville. While visitors can tour two of Weld County’s original fur trading forts, Fort St. Vrain is now marked by a stone monument.
To visit the monument, take Weld County Road 40 west from Highway 85. The road, which passes through private property so please be mindful and respectful, dead-ends at the monument.
Visit the 1835 fur-trading fort and follow the paths of founders Louis Vasquez and Andrew Sublette.
