Montrose Colorado’s Best places to take a calming walk
We are only one month into winter and getting outdoors for a walk is not always likely, unless you like being bundled up in many layers of clothing. Even my little dog Deuce seems like he has cabin fever. I miss walking past my neighbors and saying hello. Living on the Western Slope, it's such an outdoor haven.
What Park do you go to:
River Bottom is a great park to check out.
Location: 205 Apollo Road Montrose Colorado, only 3.9 miles from the Montrose Airport
What is another great location to walk/hike:
Cerise Park is also where the Montrose Amphitheater is located.
Location: Shanes Way in Montrose Colorado
Since the first week I moved here, I couldn't get enough of Riverbottom Sports park. That's the first park I checked out, mainly because you could walk in many directions with so many trails to choose from. It's fun watching people kayak in the fast-moving waters. It's also so relaxing to stand on the bridge and just take in the fresh mountain air. Now I do notice most are wearing wetsuits, as the water is a quite chilly year round.
During the Summer months, while the Montrose Music Series is going on, my husband and I will park at Riverbottm Sports park and take the trail and path to The Montrose Ampitheater at Cerise Park, another great park to walk around. That is a great way to get some exercise as well. I know there are many, but make sure to check out my two favorites.
