“The pinnacle of San Juan”
Chimney Rock is a San Juan National Forest National Monument located in Colorado between Durango and Pagosa Springs and managed for archaeological protection, public interpretation, and education. Its care, protection, and preservation are shared by the Pagosa Ranger District, USDA Forest Service and the public, who contribute through tour fees, donations, and purchase of items from the Chimney Rock Visitor's Center. The Chimney Rock Interpretive Program, managed and staffed by the National Forest Service and volunteers of the Chimney Rock Interpretive Association, conducts daily guided walking tours and operates the Visitor Center during in-season, May 15 to September 30.
Visitor Center Cabin is open daily from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. from May 15 to Sept. 30. Volunteers and staff provide site and tour information.
Awesome. Totally worth the visit. Lovely staff and visitor center.
Must see. The place is well cared for with a strong volunteer force. History is covered thoroughly. It’s a real buzz standing on the mesa top imagining the lives spent there.
