Great Sand Dunes National Park Sights

Manassa, San Luis, and Fort Garland Loop

  • Scenic Drive/Tour

Updated 08/08/2013

Fodor's Review

To get a real feel for this area, take an easy driving loop from Alamosa through much of the San Luis Valley (the whole trip is about 95 miles). Head east on U.S 160 to Fort Garland, south on Highway 159 to San Luis, west on Highways 159 and 142 to Manassa, then north on U.S. 285 back to Alamosa. More than half of the route is part the Los Caminos Antiguos Drive, one of Colorado's Scenic Byways.
