Overview: You have to stay somewhere while planning and hiking the south central Colorado high country near Buena Vista, CO, with its nearby and surrounding twenty-one (21) accessible 14'ers. Why not convince some others to join you and share-in the cost of this lovely, completely furnished (soup to nuts) 20+ acre "Arkansas Riverfront Ranch Cabin" to use as your base camp?!
On your planned easier day(s) off from hiking the higher elevation peaks in the area, you can enjoy this delightful setting with this "Arkansas River Loop Hike" starting from and ending 5.3 scenic and private miles later at your beginning TH front door. Believe me, it's an excellent choice!
