Montrose Colorado is the type of area people think about when they hear “Colorado”. Situated in southwestern Colorado on the Western Slope of the Rocky Mountains, Montrose is home to the Black Canyon National Park and offers scenic mountains, valleys, canyons, mesas, lakes and rivers, plus all the recreational activities that accompany these natural wonders such as hiking, mountain biking, skiing, fishing, camping, boating and more. Montrose has mild summers and winters with minimal snow accumulation in the city, making a great four season playground.

Black Canyon National Park

Big enough to be overwhelming, still intimate enough to feel the pulse of time, Black Canyon of the Gunnison exposes you to some of the steepest cliffs, oldest rock, and craggiest spires in North America. With two million years to work, the Gunnison River, along with the forces of weathering, has sculpted this vertical wilderness of rock, water, and sky.   Click Here for the official Park website.≈
