UNCOMPAHGRE RIVER
Excellent fishing opportunities exist on the
Uncompahgre River, right in the city of Montrose.
Public access is plentiful and the river can be
fished year-round.

CONNECT TRAIL EASY
Take a detour from the main trail and check out
other paved and soft-surface trails that branch
from the Connect Trail, including singletrack trails
and even a pump track.

MONTROSE WATER SPORTS PARK
Get a dose of waterborne excitement just minutes
from Main Street at the Montrose Water Sports
Park! Designed to delight an array of visitors -
from ankle waders to expert kayakers - the park
includes six drop structures, ADA-accessible putin and take-out ramps, and terraced spectator and
beach areas to watch the action. See page 40 for
more information.

FRUIT LOOP EASY
This beautiful trail through Montrose County recalls
the area's rich agricultural heritage. Just remember,
cows have the right-of-way!

RAFT THE GUNNISON RIVER
Want to see the Gunnison Gorge from the inside
out? Getting in the river is the coolest way to do
so. Bring your own raft, rent one from a local
shop, or take a guided float.
TAVIWACH LAKE
Head down to Montrose Kayak and Surf to rent
paddleboards and safety gear, then go over
to the lake and enjoy its serene waters in the
Colorado sunshine.
RIDGWAY RESERVOIR
‚Äč idgway's gorgeous reservoir is the ideal
R
paddleboarding destination. Take in the park's
stunning mountain views as you engage in
a fun, full-body workout. With boating and
beaches that offer swimming spots, this area is
great for family outings.

BUZZARD GULCH LOOP MODERATE
This up-and-coming trail is suitable for all cyclists
from beginner to advanced. Mileage of this trail
can be scaled to your liking!
WHOLE UNCOLADA DIFFICULT
This 20.4-mile trail offers a rippin' descent,
sometimes on sketchy loose rock, miles of amazing
fast singletrack, a few anaerobic climbs, a short hike
for variety, and then MORE fast flowy singletrack
on Buzzard Gulch.
RIMROCKER TRAIL
MONTROSE TO MOAB DIFFICULT
Travel on the 160-mile Rimrocker Trail is open to
off-highway vehicles including dirt bikes, 4-wheeldrive vehicles, and bicycles. One indispensable
companion for your trip is the official Rimrocker
Trail Map (available at the Montrose Visitor
Center, 107 S Cascade Ave). You can also see the
trail online at RimrockerTrail.org.

CHIPETA LAKE
This property, recently acquired by the City of
Montrose, provides fun for the whole family.
The Uncompahgre River flows past this easily
accessible and picturesque lake, providing great
fishing. Can you believe that you are IN town?
DALLAS CREEK/ RIDGWAY RESERVOIR
Highlights include a long shoreline for river or
reservoir fishing with convenient drive-up areas
and parking spaces. The best fishing is often
found where the Uncompahgre River empties into
the main body of the reservoir.
DUTCH CHARLIE AREA
Enjoy great shoreline fishing, especially on the
south shore of the cove where it opens out
into the main body of the reservoir. It's close to
picnicking sites, a playground, and a modern,
universally accessible fishing pier.
GUNNISON RIVER
One of Colorado's premier angling destinations,
the Gunnison River through the Gunnison Gorge
National Conservation Area and Black Canyon
National Park offers visitors a chance to experience
remote sections of prime fishing areas.
SILVER JACK RESERVOIR
A favorite fishing spot is the 325-acre Silver
Jack Reservoir. The reservoir boasts five miles
of shoreline. Hikers will enjoy many scenic
trails along the reservoir. Excellent fishing and
camping among the pines can be found at
Beaver Lake, a short distance up the road.
