Tour of Carvings

In the aftermath of the 2002 Missionary Ridge fire, local artist Chad Haspels began to create these carvings that represent the community’s rebirth despite such devastating loss. Now, you can take the Tour of Carvings and view each individual carving and learn about their unique representation of the Vallecito Lake community’s efforts to restore the valley.

Hiking around Vallecito

Explore Vallecito Creek, Lake Eileen, East Creek, and the Pine River trails. Let the clear mountain air rejuvenate and invigorate as you follow wooded paths, cross bubbling brooks, and climb mountains. We are happy to print out trail maps for you, just ask and we'll deliver them right to your cabin.
