Just in case you need a quick escape, the U.S. Highway 50 is the main road that leads in and out of Montrose.
Sitting in Montrose County, Colorado, this is where the 2011 video game "Homefront" is set. The town has been featured in episodes of "Dog the Bounty Hunter", the movies "How the West Was Won" and the original 1969 version of "True Grit". It was the birthplace of Dalton Trumbo, the American screenwriter and novelist who wrote the scripts for the movies "Roman Holiday", "Exodus" and "Spartacus".
Incorporated in 1882, the town became an important regional shipping center when the railroad came through serving the mineral-rich San Juan Mountains. In 1909 the government completed the Gunnison Tunnel through which irrigation water came from the Gunnison River in the Black Canyon and Montrose became the agricultural hub of the area. Today this canal creates the perfect spot for kayak-surfing, called the M-wave just for the extreme sports junkie to freak out on. From Montrose it is easy to access the dramatic Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park for hiking, mountain biking or camping adventures in the summer. In the winter it is the transportation center for the skiing areas of the San Juan Mountains. Close by you will find the Curecanti National Recreational Area that includes the massive Blue Mesa Reservoir. You can see the rock art left by the prehistoric inhabitants of the area at the Shavano Valley Rock Art Site that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
When the outdoor adventures get too much you can explore one of the museums in town and discover the heritage of Montrose. Take the Historic Walking Tour or meander around the streets until you find a cafe or bar to recline in and rest those trekking tortured limbs.
