Weber and Menefee Mountains provide important undisturbed wildlife habitat amidst the developed ranches and farms of the Mancos Valley. The two mountains are prominent buttes, rising from 6,500 to over 8,200 feet, capped with resistant Point Lookout Sandstone that forms sheer cliffs. Weber Mountain and Menefee Mountain offer wonderful opportunities for solitude, fine scenery, and backcountry recreation in close proximity to Mesa Verde National Park. Weber Mountain is the most prominent feature visible from the main entrance road into the park. Wilderness designation will ensure that this view is not despoiled for the park visitors.
