Already a fan of the canyon lands in Moab, Utah? Check. On the lookout for a new adventure and a few less fellow travelers? Read on, there’s more to do in southwestern Colorado than skiing in Telluride.
Drive to southwest Colorado where two rivers meet and gain access to the little known canyons that lie in-between Grand Junction and Montrose. The Gateway Canyon Resort, already a great stop off for festivals, spectacular scenery, BBQ and ranch style hospitality, is about to open their newest addition to their property. The Adventure Center is set up to be your base camp for a whole host of activities; with categories ranging from hiking/climbing, river adventures and mountain biking, to back country guided trips. The staff at the Adventure Center at Gateway Canyons can help guests decide whether they want to rappel off a canyon wall, fly-fish in an alpine lake, hike to a canyon with ancient petroglyphs, raft class IV rapids, or mountain bike through Aspen groves.
"Gateway Canyons Adventure Center has treks, tours and adventures for every ability and skill level. Our goal is help folks get into the back country and experience one of the most pristine and awe-inspiring settings in the west," said manager, Dawn Wieker.
One of the premier offerings are the multi-day guided trips which combine a wilderness encounter with education. Look into expanding your mind as well as your inner adventurer with fireside lectures on Western Archaeology, Writing in the Wild, and Water in the West.
Adventures begin at Gateway Canyons where staff and resources make it possible for guests to discover the hidden access to remote canyon lands. To set up a Gateway Canyons adventure, visit www.gatewaycanyons.com or contact Dawn Wieker at 970.931.2649.
