Outdoor Recreation Paradise
It’s no secret why people want to relocate to western Colorado – the quality of life and surrounding landscape that its residents define.
In the heart of the Rocky Mountains, the Colorado River Valley is a mecca for all things outdoors. With eight major alpine ski resorts within an hour’s drive and more than 800,000 acres of back country wilderness in the White River National Forest, Western Garfield Colorado residents spend the majority of their free time on their bikes, rafts, kayaks, skis, and climbing ropes.
Framing the communities of Rifle, Silt, New Castle, Battlement Mesa and Parachute are world-class climbing, fishing, and hunting opportunities, as well as several of the best Colorado State parks and an abundance of trail heads.
