October is a quiet and beautiful time of year to visit Fourteener Country!
With the summer crowds gone you can have the best trails, lakes, fishing spots, and peaks all to yourself. This is a great time of the year to hike, bike, explore jeep trails and ghost towns before they are buried under the snow. 
Here are a few things happening this October.
ShedFest 2016
ShedFest is the CCFA's annual, end-of-season harvest celebration. It is your final opportunity to buy amazing fresh, local produce, support our local farmers, ranchers, artists and healers. 
Stay for the party after the farmers market! Salida Circus will perform and offer an interactive workshop. Salida Rec. will host all kinds of kids activities, our vendors will offer more in depth info and workshops about what they do.

Fall is a great time to get out and enjoy fishing in the Arkansas River or in one of the high alpine lakes in near solitude. The fish are still there, but the crowds are gone. 
The Arkansas River boasts a 102 mile segment of Gold Medal Waters! This is the longest single stretch of Gold Medal Waters in the state. Fourteener Country is home to hundreds of high alpine lakes. Check with the local fly shop for seasonal info on the best spots to fish.
