We ❤️ our Hikers!
Monarch Mountain Lodge is a great stopping place to rest your head, restock on supplies or just take advantage of our showers and laundry room. We aim to cater to all our hiker’s needs, whether you’re breaking overnight or just for a few minutes.
FREE Resupply and care packages are accepted and placed on hold until you arrive! We are located on Monarch Mountain, 17 miles from the city of Salida, on Highway 50 in between Boss Lake Trail and Billings Lake OHV Route--just follow the 70s music, you’ll find us--just kidding (no, seriously, I’m not kidding!). The package hold service is FREE but we would love a tag @monarchmountainlodge on your favorite social media platform or review site.
You may ship your package with any carrier you choose; however, we recommend USPS Priority or USPS 2-day Priority which allows you free return-shipping incase your plans may change. Whatever carrier you choose, please add 1 extra day for delivery (because, well, you know, “Mountain-Time” 🙄)
