Colorado Ghost Towns and Alpine Passes

4 reviews
Experience the remote mountain ghost towns via miners' tracks over alpine passes of the Rocky Mountains. See the high-country splendor - beautiful meadows of blooming columbines and lupines, rushing mountain streams and waterfalls and abundant local wildlife. Explore the mountains the way locals do, guided by highly-trained local experts. Using sturdy off-road vehicles, we explore remote, well-preserved ghost towns. The once legendary Como, Tin Cup, Pitkin are on our route. Crossing Boreas, Weston, Cottonwood and Cumberland Passes allows you to see the Rocky Mountains on remote miners' tracks off the beaten path and without tourists. Experience Colorado like a true local!

Fish this time of the year for the bigger one's! September though November. Allow more time to find them (fish), then stand back for the big ones on power bait green and yellow with sparkles!

Reservoir is closed and no date for opening. Camping is closed also. Rest of the state is opened up but Gunnison county manager closed the county with extreme measures. Town is closed also. No open date from Curracanti Park "owners" word is June.

My husband and I had a great time fishing for Kokanee salmon with Mark as our guide! He knows the area so very well and was busy making sure our experience was memorable and it was! Thanks, Mark!

We had a great time fishing with Robby on the Blue Mesa reservoir. He is a great guide and an equaly wonderful person. Don't miss this adventure, you will regret it forever. Three of us fished and two watched and Robby kept us jumping. It was just a wonderful day with family and great fishing. we caught our limit in salamon and trout. I'm going back, hopefully with my granddaughters again.

Hello, I'm glad you enjoyed your time in the Gunnison area. "Blue Mesa Fishing" on trip advisor is a guided fishing business where we take people out on guided fishing trips. If it's not too much hassle, would you mind removing this review since it sounds like you didn't use our services. Thanks!
