Jon Wilson Yurt

Permission from BLM for year round use brings many changes to the Jon Wilson Memorial Yurt.

The Jon Wilson Yurt is a short 1.25 miles from State Highway 149 south of Lake City. It provides an excellent destination for novice back country skiers or snowshoers in the winter or a variety of summer campers. This will make an easy hike from the highway for folks without four wheel drive. 4X4\'s, ATVs etc have a parking area 200 yards of the yurt. A foot path leads from the road to the yurt. There is no motorized access to the yurt.

The site has great views of Lake San Cristobal and the Lake Fork valley, Sunshine Peak and the other alpine peaks across the valley, plus views of Lake City. Located just one and one quarter mile from the highway along a wide and regularly groomed trail, with no avalanche danger in winter and a 4X4 road in summer, it is a good destination for families.

The new Wilson Yurt is 20 feet in diameter and sleeps up to 8 people. It has double pane glass slider windows and many other improvements that were not possible when the yurt was required to be set up and then taken down again each season.
