Southwest of Buena Vista is a town called St. Elmo and ATV & 4x4 Trails ranging from easy to highly technical. Towering 14,000' peaks, affectionately named 14er's, are visible all along US 24/285. Traveling west, from US 285, on County Road 162 places you between Mt. Princeton (14,197') and Mt. Antero (14,269') on the way to St. Elmo's adventure trails. Certainly no lack in elevation!

St. Elmo's roots originate in the late 1800's mining era. Venturing south to Hancock Ghosttown leads to the Alpine Tunnel, the first bore through the Continental Divide. The tunnel brought the Denver, South Park and Pacific railroad to Buena Vista and Leadville. Along this path the Iron Chest Mine is accessible. This is considered one of the most technical trails in Colorado! A little further south is another side trail leading to Pomeroy Lakes and Mary Murphy Mine.
