When you get to Hwy 50, turn left and follow the directions above for Coming in from the East on Hwy 50.

“Thank you for the wonderful accommodations while I was climbing the Collegiate Peaks. Without your gracious hospitality, I would never have made it to any of the summits. On my three week trip over the western states, the Woodland was the BEST!”

“The Woodland is like Salida – small, somewhat simple, aesthetically attractive and totally cool. I wish there were Woodlands in the rest of the country.”
