Colorado Unit 79 Description
Unit 79 San Luis Valley Area: Mineral, Rio Grande and Saguache Counties bounded on the North by USFS trails 787 & 796, USFS 676 & 675 and Saguache CRs 41G & G; on the East by U.S. 285; on the South by U.S. 160; on the West
by Colorado HWY 149, USFS 600 & 600-3A and La Garita Stock Driveway (ATV trail).
The San Luis Valley is a vast 8,000-square-mile area that provides a wide variety of terrain at elevations that range from 7,500 feet to 14,000 feet. The rugged Sangre de Cristo Mountains define the valley’s east side. The middle of the valley is flat farm land that is privately owned. The Rio Grande and the Conejos River provide long riparian areas that cut through high-elevation alpine forests to lower elevation cottonwood and willow stands. The west is bordered by the Rio Grande National Forest and the San Juan mountain range.
Throughout the area, access varies from moderate to very difficult. Hunting can be good for those willing to go into tough terrain. Hunting is also challenging because animals in many areas can move quickly to large areas of private or federal refuge land.
