Alpine Loop Recreation Area Junior Explorer
Welcome to the Alpine Loop. One of the best things about public lands is that it is a place where we can go to do the things that we love to do outside such as: hiking, fishing, camping, rock climbing and 4-wheeling. Our public lands have something for everyone to do. As you travel the Alpine Loop, you will be travelling through the San Juan Mountains, the highest mountain range in the Rockies. This area is home to many different kinds of wildlife, and over the years many different people have come and gone. Activities include history of the area, wildlife tracks, habitat, and the history of gold and silver mining.
