With more than 492,000 acres, the Weminuche Wilderness is one of the largest wilderness areas in the United States. Within the wilderness area, which is closed to all vehicular traffic, you can hike to high alpine valleys, mountain peaks and pristine lakes on hundreds of miles of marked trails. While the wilderness area has many access points, one of the best approaches is from the Durango & Silverton railroad stop of Elk Park, just outside of Silverton. You can purchase a ticket to or from Elk Park onboard as long as space is available—no reservations are taken for this flag stop.
