Mount Sneffels Wilderness

Mount Sneffels Wilderness

The views south of Ridgway are regarded as some of the most mesmerizing in Colorado. Mt Sneffels, Dallas Peak, and their neighbors protrude in a sensational fashion from the Uncompahgre Valley below. Picturesque ranches wrinkle the northern slopes of the Sneffels Range, arguable the most famous of which belongs to none other than Mr. Ralph Lauren. Mt. Sneffels (14,150 feet) is deservedly the main attraction in this sub-range of the San Juan’s. Our trips bear this in mind by setting up close to the base of Mt Sneffels in a beautiful, spruce filled wilderness. At 16,566 acres, the Sneffels wilderness has an intimate vibe to it as one of the smallest wilderness areas of Colorado. Made up predominately of igneous volcanic rock, these vast peaks and ridges are plausibly the most iconic in Colorado.
