Join the Project

In 2017, with overwhelming support, we moved Chipeta Mountain from a lower sub peak to the true13,472-foot summit of the mountain. In October 2017, we held the first annual Chipeta Rising Celebration in Salida, Colorado.

Now we are working on the Mountain Heritage Park (MHP). The proposed Mountain Heritage Park (MHP) will highlight and celebrate the rich cultural and natural history of Salida's mountain heritage.
