Surrounding Vallecito Reservoir are several hiking trails of varying difficulty for every type of hiker! Get outside with your family and enjoy the majestic scenery that the San Juan Mountains have to offer. Hiking in the San Juan Mountains doesn't have to be a multi-day affair; with Elk Point Lodge as your base camp, there are many day-hike trailheads within 5 miles.
Elk Point Lodge is also a great spot to acclimatize yourself to the elevation before heading out for a backpacking trip. We sit just under 8000' elevation, so come enjoy some relaxing lake views before your big trip!
