Start at I-25 Pueblo then drive south to the Colorado City Exit. There are two good restaurants right off the Interstate, plus a nice visitor center. Then keep going on 165 to San Isabel for a beautiful drive through the lush Wet Mountains. Lake Isabel...More

We were looking for a trip that we hadn't done before and so headed south west of Pueblo to Wetmore and the Wet Mountains. We ended up doing the driving tour we found online and it was a pretty drive for a short 100+ miles.
