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 hikers whether you’re breaking overnight or just for a few minutes.

RESUPPLY PACKAGES - 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. We are located on Highway 50 in between Boss Lake Trail and Billings Lake OHV Route in San Isabel National Forest--just follow the 70s music, you’ll find us--just kidding (no, seriously, I’m not kidding!). 

This service is free, but we would LOVE a tag @monarchmountainlodge on your favorite social media platform.
