Dolores is a hidden gem. A beautiful and still small mountain town, which has a great microbrewery, a famous 'biker bar' and a gourmet, organic local grocery. Just at the edge of town are extensive mountain bike trails. Situated 1 hour from Telluride, 45mins from Durango, 1/2 hr from Mesa Verde and an hour from Canyon of the Ancients, there are numerous activitites to explore. Dolores River runs right through town with rafting opportunities. Fly fishing is also very good.
In Dolores, the seasons vary almost exactly when they should. All of the seasons are beautiful. The canyon wall provides endless opportunities to see bear, elk, deer, fox and mountain lions. Although the house is in town, a feeling of privacy and solitude is the normal experience there. Peaceful and totally Colorado.
Located near Mesa Verde between Durango and Telluride in the Dolores River Canyon by Lake McPhee the second largest resovoir in Colorado.
