Continental Divide Trail thru-hikers relax outside after a resupply.

  WELCOME HIKERS!

You are our favorite customers at the Twin Lakes General Store and we hope you feel at home when you arrive in Twin Lakes along your journey. 

We’re a major backpacking resupply stop on the Continental Divide and Colorado Trails and a basecamp for 14er climbers. Our owner and staff are hikers and trail adopters along the CDT and CT and work hard to help keep our local trails clear and welcome any input you have on trail conditions or input for improvement.  

Come on in, we’d love to meet you! Hang out on our patio and enjoy the views and the following amenities:

   SENDING A SUPPLY BOX

Continental Divide, Colorado Trail and Collegiate Loop Trail thru-hikers and backpackers – we will happily hold your resupply boxes for free*. Please follow our label format carefully to ensure your resupply arrives via USPS, UPS, or Fedex. (*Because of staff time and storage, there will now be a $5 charge for multiple boxes, or above average size and weight (think larger than priority mail boxes). 

If you want the option to return your boxes in the event your hike is cut short, we recommend UPS first or FedEx and work with them to provide return labels. Otherwise, we cannot send back. If a phone number is needed by the deliverer, you can use our store phone – (719) 486 – 2196. 

Consider shopping in store to save on shipping, our shelves are stocked with popular backpacker foods and supplies!

   AVAILABLE BACKPACKING BRANDS & SUPPLIES

Our store shelves may look like the inside of your resupply box!  We feature many popular and expected food options, name-brand bars and gels, spreads, dehydrated food, snacks, instant foods, cold beer and ice cream.  Also maps, medical supplies, camp fuel canisters, backpacking stoves, pots, technical gear, back-up gear and fix-it supplies.

We carry all of these brands and more for your resupply!

Please join us in supporting these groups who protect and improve Colorado and the outdoors!
