The Adventure Seeker

 Printable Version

If you’re seeking outdoor adventure, surely you’ve come to the right place.
Whip down a series of whitewater rapids on the young and nimble Arkansas River that carves its way through our valley. Or, for the experienced, navigate down the Arkansas River in a kayak. The river is world famous for offering the best kayaking in the world. Get your fix skiing or snowboard down the slopes of Monarch Mountain (west of Poncha Springs) or Ski Cooper (near Leadville). Hike way up in the high country, where breathtaking views are the norm (not the exception). Gain the summit of any of our mountains including our 20+ nearby fourteeners. Take on some of the wildest and bumpiest roads you’ll ever experience in your life in your 4-wheel-drive vehicle or ATV!
