About 20 minutes outside of Creede, Colorado, this yurt is the ideal glamping accommodation, blending comfort and town amenities perfectly with the rustic peace and quiet of the mountain.

Landscapes don't get much more impressive than Creede, Colorado. Tucked away into the San Juan Mountains, this former volcanic caldera is surrounded by sheer cliffs that have kept the town small and Mother Nature omnipresent. There is so much to do outdoors, guests won't know where to begin. Maybe guests might like to start a morning fishing. Situated at the headwaters of the San Juan and the Rio Grande rivers, guests can wake up with the sun and start the day fishing for trout. The best fishing will be between June and October when the water is at its warmest. If guests don't like fishing, well the Rio Grande is still a great place for rafting and kayaking, with Class II-IV waters.

Another day, guests should check out the Wheeler Geologic area in the Rio Grande National Forest. Not only are there many hiking trails to be explored, but also worth visiting for the unique geological formations of eroded volcanic ash. In the afternoon, guests can head into Creede for some history at the mining museum or a relaxing lunch at one of the many restaurants. This part of Colorado attracts hikers from all around because of its proximity to the Continental Divide and the Colorado Trail, that pass through the county. Less rigorous trails, however, do exist and many guests in the past have enjoyed spending their vacation simply hiking during the days and relaxing in town at night. Popular trails include the Phoenix Park Trail, Miners Creek Trail, Inspiration Point, and Bachelor Loop (a mountain biking trail).
