Welcome to Questa


The curious name comes courtesy of a typo when the modern township was founded in 1842: it was meant to be called 'Cuesta,' Spanish for cliff or large hill, which would fit its looks perfectly.

Just northeast of town, the Latir Peak Wilderness is one of the sweetest spots around, perfect for a rewarding night or two of backpacking, or an intense day hike. Scenic alpine trails that climb high above the treeline include a loop that ascends 12,708ft Latir Peak.
