Preserving & Enhancing
the Mosquito Range
Whether resident or visitor, MRHI was
organized by and for those who are passionate about the beauty and
fragility of our Mosquito Range mountain resources.
Our mission: The Mosquito Range Heritage Initiative, through
cooperative efforts, seeks to conserve unique natural areas,
preserve historic & cultural sites, promote diverse recreation and
develop community business opportunities.
Our Continental Divide study area spans the Mosquito Range Mountains
north to south from Hoosier Pass to Weston Pass, and east to west
from the Middle Fork of the South Platte River to the Park County
Whether the issue involves access to 14ers (14,000+ foot mountains),
preserving sensitive wetlands, rebuilding a well-worn trail or
saving a historic mining structure, MRHI is there. These precious
resources are the reason we live here…and the incentive for
worldwide travelers to select this as their destination.
