This unique corner of Colorado offers something for everyone. Tucked away between Telluride and Moab on Colorado’s Western Slope is an undiscovered treasure trove of outdoor adventure known as the West End. This area is not a National Park with paved walkways and ‘no petting’ signs. It is raw and rugged. It requires personal responsibility, wayfinding, and a John Wayne-like attitude. It also offers some of the best hiking, mountain biking, 4-wheeling and rock climbing in southern Colorado. Not to mention horseback riding, hunting, fishing and family-friendly activities too.
It’s storied mining, tribal and agricultural heritage are the bedrock of this tightly knit community that relishes the old way of life. It feels like taking a step back in time with a slow pace, unspoiled nature and genuine smiles from locals that will bring you back time and time again.
