Gunnison Neighborhood Spotlight: Dos Rios
Dos Rios is Gunnison’s golf community, located a few short miles West of Gunnison, right off of highway 50, and is one of Gunnison’s prime real estate opportunities. Land, townhomes, and single family homes are all offered for sale surrounding the golf course, making this area a golf lover’s dream. The par 71 course is a real gem, with plenty of water features befitting the name “Dos Rios”. Located near the confluence of the Gunnison river and Tomichi creek and surrounded by Cottonwood trees and the rocky outcroppings of Hartman’s Rocks, the Dos Rios area is one of the most scenic in the Gunnison area. Speaking of Hartman’s Rocks, this recreation area borders the golf course and is popular with cross country skiers in the winter, and climbers, mountain bikers, and hikers in the summer. The recreational opportunities of Blue Mesa reservoir (Colorado’s largest body of water) are less than 10 miles away for boating, water skiing, fishing and more. The south side of the West Elk mountain range can easily be accessed from Dos Rios by travelling up Gunnison tributaries such as Red Creek.
Other nearby attractions include Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park and the historic silver mining town of Lake City. Shopping, dining, and more are a short drive from Dos Rios in Gunnison, while Crested Butte is just over 30 miles away.
