The Gateway to Colorado
Gateway sits along the 133-mile Unaweep/Tabeguache scenic and historic byway, which winds through red sandstone in the spectacular Unaweep Canyon. The town's name denotes its location at the entrance to Colorado from bordering Utah, and the surrounding landscape reveals something of both states. This rugged and remote town near John Brown and Unaweep canyons offers access to untouched backcountry adventures in the La Sal Mountains and Uncompahgre National Forest. There are not many amentities - the town just has a gas station and a post office - so come prepared for any outdoor adventure.
Gateway is home to the Gateway Canyons Resort, a beautiful oasis with access to mountain biking, horseback riding, hiking and climbing, fishing and rafting.
