Ditch the asphalt and go off-road!
Montrose, Colorado offers plenty of off-the-beaten-path adventure in the form of 4x4/Jeeping, ATVing, dirt biking, and rock crawling.
Gunnison Gorge National
The 20-mile single-track Sidewinder Trail is the most recent addition to the Gunnison Gorge and is already popular with locals. It snakes in and out of canyons and is an expert-level technical trail for those on two wheels.
The vast expanses of public lands on the Uncompahgre Plateau are a great place to combine off-roading with hiking, mountain biking, hunting, and camping. For those who possess the right equipment and extra fortitude, the Plateau is also home to some world-class rock crawling routes.
