Live. Work. Play.



Gunnison Rising is all about well-designed, safe neighborhoods with tree-lined parks in every direction and walking and biking connections to downtown Gunnison, Western Colorado University, and larger natural areas. As Gunnison Rising grows, there are plans for a cozy café, a lively mini-main street, and places to view a sunset from the top of the hills. Nearby you’ll find Jorgenson Park Ice Rink & Event Center, Gunnison Whitewater Park, Dos Rios Golf Club, Hartman Rocks Recreation Area, Curecanti National Recreation Area (including Colorado’s largest body of water, Blue Mesa Reservoir), Gunnison Arts Center, and Gunnison Pioneer Museum.

TRAIL SYSTEM & Amenities

Whether strolling with your family to an evening movie or concert, mounting up on bikes to tackle Hartman Rocks Recreation Area or casting your fly rod on Tomichi Creek, Gunnison Rising is designed to maximize the outdoor lifestyle Gunnison has to offer.

The vision is to bring nature to residents’ front doors with large regional parks, vista viewpoints and small pocket parks within a five-minute walk of every home.

Trails connect to the great outdoors that surround Gunnison Rising: the new Signal Peak trail system to the north, a future trail connection south to Hartman Rocks, and what is projected to someday become Tomichi Creek State Park, with endless fishing, hiking and cross-country skiing opportunities.
