A great spot to stop and contemplate. During November, especially in the middle of the week, this park is practically deserted. Except for the deer and other wildlife.

Scenic Ridgway

Ridgway state park is surrounded by striking and diverse beauty. The Sneffels Range rises to the park's south while the Cimmaron range looms in the distance to the east. Heading west out of Ridgway, the relatively flat (especially for Colorado) Uncompahgre Plateau stretches for about 70 miles.

Ridgway State park fishing

FIshing is one of the main attractions here. Some of the best trout fising is found within this park. These wooden bridges lead to fishing spots along the river .

Exploring Ridgway State Park

There really isn't much hiking in this park. There are several short trails which lead to the river, but that's all I was able to find. I wouldn't recommend this area to anyone looking to do any serious hiking, but its still a nice spot to get out and stretch your legs a little bit.

And since its such a quiet location, there's a chance of seeing wildlife here. I encountered a deer jumping through the vegetation a few feet away from me. It gave the whole Ridgway experience a back to nature feeling.

Ridgway State Park

Ridgway State Park is 22 miles south of Montrose along Hwy 550. It is one of the newer state parks. Most of the park's activities center around the Ridwgay Reservoir, but there are an additional 2,000 acres of land within the park's boundaries. Short trails lead out from the recreation sites, mostly to fishing spots.
