Welcome to Fourteener Country!

 

Your Online Resource for FUN in the Colorado Fourteeners Region - Buena Vista, Salida, Leadville, Fairplay/South Park, and more...

 

Definition:

Fourteener (14er): a mountain exceeding 14,000 feet elevation.

Step into our country, and let it sweep you off your feet.

From South Park to Buena Vista, Leadville to Salida, Colorado Springs to Durango, we have the down and dirty on how to play hard and live well in Fourteener Country.

Looking for that perfect vacation spot near Twin Lakes? Or looking for that perfect recreational adventure to go on, whether it's rafting down the Arkansas or exploring local Art Festivals?

We have that.

Need lodging, advice on dining and the best places to shop, or a hand finding real estate?

We have that too.

If it goes on in the mountains, you'll find it in our pages. All the information you'll need to plan a vacation, a day trip, a history lesson or a move is lying in wait for you as surely as a stagecoach ambush was back in the day along the old road to Leadville.

Come visit our ghost towns.  Explore the area riding your bicycle over Independence Pass. Grab your camera, binoculars, and spotting scopes and come to the Arkansas River Valley where you can watch wildlife in their natural setting. Colorado's 960 species of wildlife make an extraordinary contribution to the quality of life we all enjoy in this state and in Fourteener Country! The abundance of wildlife provides a myriad of opportunities for various outdoor activities.


Perhaps you want to visit our National Forests or our Wilderness area.  Take a leisurely stroll along the famed Mineral Belt National Recreation Trail.  Or maybe you're into hiking or backpacking legendary trails including the Colorado Trail.

 

For the motorists, you can't beat the scenery along the  "Top of the Rockies National Scenic Byway".

 

We have it all and we can't wait for you to discover Fourteener Country!
