This forest covers a lot of south central Colorado and includes the amazing Spanish Peaks, the azure San Isabel Lake, and Greenhorn Mountain. Most of the visitors are locals, and the crowds are a lot easier to deal with than in the more touristy parts of Colorado.

Pipes made a horrific moaning on and off all night and to top it off the housekeeper stole my brand new pair of running shoes! Never again! P.S.... More

This is a nice place to take a romantic stroll with your loved one, pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the outdoors. Not to mention the lake you can fish, rent paddle boats.

While visiting family in Cuchara, CO we hiked several trails here. Views are breathtaking! A definite change in scenery once in the forest... lovely!

Every time our family visits CO we must go to San Isabel and enjoy the breathtaking view. I never get tired of looking at the scenic view. This is a must see for anyone in the area.

This is another in a long line of completely breath-taking places we visited! We're kind of proud of a lot of Utah, But this place really gets to You in a deep way! I'd sure love to live up here!

The west side has a beautiful lake and you may even spot some bears wandering around. Drive northwest from here to Westcliffe and pass Bishop's Castle for an unsusual adventure and climb.

The lake was the highlight. As was the hiking. A couple of really nice trails and both were fairly beginner level. A nice forest...

I came to CO to get away for awhile and just be alone with God. THIS was the place to be! It was so insanely quiet. Just the trees and I. Beautiful running brooks, trees of all kinds, and enormous rocks to sit and read on while the leaves fell. There are bathrooms everywhere, except they do have them closed... More
