Wet Mountains scenic drive offers a multitude of activities to do along the drive, let alone the scenery. Their is quite of number of hiking trails accessible from this route through the San Isabel National Forest. Then their is the oddity of Bishop's castle. Also nice for fee camping at Lake Isabel, which can be a nice base camp for the area. Overall, like so many areas in Colorado, a nice area known for its natural beauty and volumes of things to do.
