Location


Gateway Canyons is located in Unaweep Canyon, one of the most unique red rock canyons in the world. The word Unaweep is a Native American term meaning “canyon with two mouths.” It is thought that the ancestral Colorado and Gunnison rivers may have cut through the soft red sandstone of the Uncompahgre Plateau, exposing stone dated to Precambrian times. This is said to be the only canyon in the world that is drained by two creeks; East Creek and West Creek, sending water off in opposite directions. Much like the nearby Colorado National Monument, our area has special recognition in Colorado geology. Ancient rivers eroded the rock away, exposing more than a hundred million years of the geologic record and fossils of dinosaurs and early amphibians.

 Amenities


At Gateway Canyons Resort in Western Colorado, each day of your visit begins in golden light as the sun illuminates our towering peaks of granite and sandstone in shades of amber and ochre. Across the canyon floor, sunrise moves silently into our valley, warming each cavern, mantle and peak.

Gateway Adventure Center offers hiking, climbing, horseback riding, off-roading and more. The on-site auto museum houses the one of a kind 1954 Oldsmobile F-88 and nearly 60 other rare and spectacular cars.

A little tired after your CBB Hut Trip adventure? Chill in one of the pools or give yourself a chance to slow down even more and get a massage at their spa.

*CBB trip pricing covers the cost of your room but for all other resort options, the tour guests handle the cost.
