Where Waunita Hot Springs Ranch is located

shot of the front Waunita Hot Springs Ranch, located high in the Colorado Rockies at an elevation of 8,946 ft., is 10 miles west of the Continental Divide. The ranch is surrounded by Gunnison National Forest land and summer pasture. U.S. Forest permits and private leases enable us to ride on, pasture and otherwise enjoy use of hundreds of thousands of acres in eastern Gunnison County.

Our remote location means guests aren't disturbed by passing traffic (maybe a yelping coyote now and then). Usually the only creatures you encounter while riding forest trails are occasional deer and elk. And the stars are always bright in Waunita Country! The lodges are located at the edge of the forest overlooking Tomichi Dome and a high "mountain park."

Since we're only ten miles from the Continental Divide and scenic mountains surround our valley, the ranch provides a pastoral and peaceful place to relax and unwind. It also puts us within easy reach of two ski resorts, and plenty of room to enjoy the seasons.
