How to Get Here
Directions to Arrowhead Mountain Lodge (AML)
DO NOT use GPS. Too many guests trusted theirs to only be misguided and lost in a dead-end field without cell signal 2 hours away!
Our road is located exactly halfway between Montrose and Gunnison off Highway 50 in the Arrowhead Canyon. The turn off the highway is at mile 123.4 or between mile marker 123 and 124.
A blue signpost “Arrowhead Lodge” and a brown “Alpine Plateau” signs are on the highway before the turn. The road you turn on will have a row of mailboxes to the right.
