2021 Montrose, Colorado Visitor Guide - 30

Making Your Way

On the Trails
Many of Colorado's most outstanding
places are accessible only on foot.
Montrose is surrounded by opportunities
to explore some of the most beautiful
countryside in the West. All levels

of hikers, from families and novice
adventurers to hardcore backpackers
and campers, can enjoy the thrill of
discovering Colorado's 'hidden' gems.

Chukar Trail

Deep in the canyons of the Gunnison Gorge
National Conservation Area lies Chukar Trail, an easy
one-mile trail that leads to the Gunnison River at the
bottom of the Black Canyon. Allow about two hours
to drive there and one to two hours to hike it. 4WD
recommended for the access road.

Dave Wood Nature Trail
Situated on Dave Wood Road, southeast of Montrose,
is the Dave Wood Interpretive Trail, a fun little onemile loop through a pine forest with numerous
informational stops along the way.

Courthouse Trail
Courthouse Mountain, one of the most prominent peaks
in the picturesque Cimarron Mountains, also features one
of the most popular summit hikes in western Colorado. The
hike to the top is slightly over two miles in length, and becomes
quite steep toward the summit. This hike is recommended
for people in search of a good challenge, not too far from
town. Courthouse Mountain is just above 12,000 feet, so we
recommend acclimating yourself first by spending a night
or two in Montrose. Allow one to two hours to drive from
Montrose and two to four hours for the hike.
