Explore the highest, hidden, and most beautiful alpine lakes in the Weminuche Wilderness of the San Juan Mountains. Hike and camp in areas that very few people enjoy the privilege of knowing that they even exist, let alone have visited.
This six-day backpacking adventure is a special trip that only San Juan Mountain Guides – with its over a quarter century of experience – can offer. A true definition of “off-the-beaten path”, this experience represents years of knowledge and information about the best routes through the heart of Colorado’s finest wilderness area.
IF YOU HAVE AN ADVENTUROUS SPIRIT AND LOVE CAMPING BY PRISTINE ALPINE LAKES BELOW BREATHTAKING PEAKS, THEN LOOK NO FURTHER.
Board the historic Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad (D&SNGRR) to access the wilderness area. A relic of the mining trade of the 1880’s – 1930’s, the train is world famous as it is one of the few narrow gauge railroads left in existence. This is a unique experience and adds an interesting start and finish to your backpacking journey. If you have an adventurous spirit and love camping by pristine alpine lakes below breathtaking peaks, then look no further.
