The Blanca Wildlife Habitat Area (Blanca Wetlands) is located only a few miles to the north. The wetlands is one of the most important areas for birds in Colorado since it provides habitat for migrating waterbirds or shorebirds. It hosts over 150 bird species, including rare species such as the bald eagle and peregrine falcon. There is no entrance fee, and there are multiple trails which are wheelchair accessible, making this a bird watcher’s paradise accessible to all.
Mt. Blanca Peak, the fourth highest summit in all of Colorado, is located just to the east of the property. The truly daring can attempt to reach the 14,351 foot peak and enjoy views for miles in every direction.
The nearby Alamosa National Wildlife Refuge can be enjoyed by driving the auto-tour route, walking or biking the nature trail, or visiting the Bluff overlook. The best time to view migratory water birds is from the beginning of April through early fall when the wetlands are flooded. Along the Rio Grande River trail you will see a wide variety of habitats, from lush grasses to dense stands of willow, to towering cottonwood trees.
The property is only thirty minutes from San Luis State Park, which features a variety of wildlife ranging from elk to migratory waterfowl and a combination of wetlands and a desert-like environment. Activities include biking, birding, boating, camping, fishing, horseback riding, and hunting.
The Great Sand Dunes National Park, which has the tallest dunes in North America, is only thirty minutes to the north. The park is a diverse landscape of grasslands, wetlands, conifer and aspen forests, alpine lakes, and tundra. Experience this diversity through hiking, sand sledding, splashing in Medano Creek, wildlife watching, and more! The park and preserve are open 24 hours a day, so plan to also experience night skies and nocturnal wildlife during your visit.
Hiking to Zapata Falls is a good option for warm summer afternoons, and offers excellent views of the entire San Luis Valley.
