Outdoor Activities

Discover all that the North Fork Valley has to offer!
55% of the North Fork Valley is public lands that are easily accessible to the outdoor enthusiast.

The area has been a popular destination for hunters and fishermen for over a century. In the fall, hunters from near and far congregate in the Valley’s towns to pick up provisions and to swap stories in the local restaurants; while the lucky ones bring their harvest for processing.
Hiking and birdwatching along the North Fork of the Gunnison River
Whether for fishing, boating, rafting or floating, area rivers, lakes and streams are popular destinations. Many also enjoy the endless hiking opportunities. Logging roads are traversed by those on off road vehicles, ATVs, mountain bikes and dirt bikes. Snowmobilers take advantage of the snow covered high country during the chilly months, and the area’s State and National Parks draw many satisfied visitors year round. Immerse yourself in the wild lands and you will certainly be glad you did; and will take home with you good memories that will last many years.
