This beautiful Western Colorado community sits at an elevation of 5,794 feet and is nestled within easy reach of a remarkably vast selection of vacation experiences. Thus the slogan “Stay here. Play everywhere.”
With the plummeting depths of the Black Canyon National Park just to the east, the towering and majestic San Juan Mountains to the south, the expansive Uncompahgre Plateau to the west, and lake-bejeweled Grand Mesa to the north, and an expansive water sports park right in the middle of town, Montrose is literally surrounded by an endless variety of prospects for exploration and adventure.
