Welcome to the Lost Wonder Hut

The hut is a historic cabin with modern amenities and offers a comfortable, cozy home base from which to hike, bike, ski, snowshoe, or just relax in the beautiful Middle Fork Valley of the South Arkansas River in Colorado’s southern Sawatch Range. Your next backcountry adventure begins here. We offer incredible multi-season opportunities to explore some of Colorado’s most breathtaking scenery from the comfort and safety of a rustic mountain lodge.

Female Owned Business

Lost Wonder Hut has been a family-owned business for over a decade, starting with a husband-and-wife team, Bobby and Natalie Lewis, and is now a mom-and-daughter operation.

Some of their collective adventures include: walking the CDT in 2006 when Jess was just a teenager, paddling the inside passage, traversing Antarctica, walking the PNT, climbing and guiding in all 7 continents, thousands of miles of whitewater navigated, and much much more.
