Known as the “gateway to the San Juan Mountains”, Del Norte is a hidden Colorado gem that’s just waiting to be found. What the small town lacks in population (less than 2,000 people call Del Norte home), it makes up for in space for outdoor recreation. Its less-trafficked nature has allowed the town to retain its true old-school Colorado feel, where everyone is a secret badass and anyone will happily point you in the direction of a trail you’ll love.
