Ridgway, Co., at the junction of U.S. 550 and Colorado 62, a point that marks that moment when the San Juans begin to reveal their remarkable size and beauty. In the late 1800s, Ridgway was a link along the Rio Grande Southern Railroad's route to Durango, and later a miner's supply town and cattle ranching hub.
Just two miles north of town is Ridgway State Park, which encompasses a 1,000-acre reservoir off the Uncompahgre River. Camping, boating, picnicking, hiking and fishing are all popular pursuits at the park.
