Emerald Lake

 
  This is no location for people who donít like to enjoy themselves. Hit the slopes at Silverton in the neighborhood, and Iron Horse Inn is a pleasant place to get some rest. If by chance you crave getting out on the water, Vallecito Doc's Marina is close at hand. If you're here at Emerald Lake during the winter you can always go to Wit's End Guest House & Resort and rent a snow mobile. San Juan National Forest is both perfect and gorgeous, and it's next to Emerald
    Lake, and Lime Mesa is uncomplicated to spot from Emerald Lake.
On nearby Canyon Creek you find a class V+ stretch of whitewater; the to Animas River segment is 3 miles long.
