Activities & Features


Montville Nature Trail is an easy hike in Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado. The park says "in summer, keep this hike as an option for afternoon as an escape from the heat of the dunes. Walk along a shady forested trail named for a late 1800s settlement, comprising 20 houses in its heydey. Rest near the trail's highpoint, where you'll find outstanding views of Mt. Herard, the dunes and the valley." There is camping available in Great Sand Dunes National Park. For those interested in backcountry camping a permit is required.
