The two towns are bordered on the west by the majestic Sangre de Cristo Mountains that ascend to 14,000 feet on some peaks, and the rolling Wet Mountains to the east. The Collegiate Peaks can be seen in the north along with Pikes Peak, and the Spanish Peaks can be seen to the south. The Wet Mountain Valley is famous for its unparalleled views, rural-ranching lifestyle, and endless miles of wilderness hiking trails through high-mountain meadows bursting with wildflowers and over 40 high-mountain lakes for fly-fishing.HISTORYThe Ute Indians were attracted to the Wet Mountain Valley by the plentiful water and abundant game. In the mid-1500s Spanish explorers entered the western edge of Custer County in search of gold, silver, and the fountain of youth. Over three hundred years later Europeans finally found the precious metals they sought, however, we are still looking for the fountain of youth.Located approximately 75 miles from Colorado Springs and only minutes from the quaint town of Westcliffe, you'll enjoy wildlife-viewing or big game hunting in this undiscovered mountain valley, boating or fishing at Lake DeWeese or first-class fly-fishing and rafting in the Arkansas River, just 30 minutes away.
