Fun All Around
Montrose is just over an hour from Telluride and has an abundance of outdoor adventures. It is surrounded by 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, lake-bejeweled Grand Mesa to the north, and has an expansive water sports park right in the middle of town. Many people fly into the Montrose Regional Airport to get to Telluride, and stop for groceries and other goodies on the way in.
Montrose is also home to the best-kept secret in the outdoors world - Black Canyon of the Gunnison, a National Park that has some of the steepest cliffs, oldest rock, and craggiest spires in North America.
