The Weminuche wilderness is the largest wilderness area in Colorado and is located in southwestern Colorado near the towns of Durango, Pagosa Springs, and Silverton. The wilderness was formed by an act of Congress in 1975 to protect a unique and wildly rugged portion of the San Juan mountain range with it’s deep forests, several fourteen thousand foot high mountain peaks, high altitude tundra, alpine lakes, and a stretch of the Continental Divide. For more information about the Weminuche wilderness, visit the Weminuche wilderness page.
As a trip planning aid for the visitors and outdoorsmen, I’ve created a free downloadable resource that contains links to trip planning web sites, wilderness rules and regulations, and a trail head map.
