We’re Helping to Improve what Makes this Mountain Town so Exceptional!

Mountain towns aren’t just known for their amazing ski slopes, but trails as well. From hiking to mountain biking, alpine terrain offers stunning views and even some challenging courses to test your skill and endurance.

Gunnison Trails are Exceptional!

Gunnison offers exceptional trails and we firmly believe it is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream playground! Gunnison has some of the most interconnected trails in the country, including over 750 miles of singletrack mountain bike trails in the county! Whether you love flowy alpine singletrack, technical desert rocks, or pine forest plunges, Gunnison County offers the possibility for epic rides that are seemingly endless. 

Expanding Access to Our Trails

Gunnison Rising is a master planned community development that understands that the natural beauty and areas for outdoor recreation are what draw people to Gunnison. Because of that, we are working closely with local nonprofit organization Gunnison Trails to ensure we expand access and improve connectivity to the trails within our development and to help maintain the more than 60 miles of multi-use trail around Gunnison, Colorado.

And the expanded access isn’t just for residents in the Gunnison Rising community, but for all residents and visitors of Gunnison, Colorado! 

Thoughtful Design is the Future

We believe that thoughtfully planned communities are better for everyone and our planet! That’s why we are designing Gunnison Rising to have walkable, trail-oriented neighborhoods. Each home will be a short walk to a park, plus you’ll be able to access hundreds of miles of trails in the region, including nearby Hartman Rocks Recreation Area. 

But we aren’t just making open spaces more accessible for everyone in our mountain town. We are also making Gunnison Rising a green neighborhood so that we can continue to enjoy all the natural beauty that makes Gunnison the best mountain town on the planet! Some of the other green features you’ll see in Gunnison Rising include:

  • Solar powered street lights
  • City electrical grid growth with 40% renewable sourced and increasing each year
  • Bicycle-focused trail system
  • Shopping district within walking distance
  • Trail connections to Western Colorado University and downtown Gunnison
