OF THE NORTH
More riders, runners and rock climbers are hanging around this small rural town (population 1,705) in the San Luis Valley named for the grand river of the north, the Rio Grande del Norte. New business owners set up shop in Del Norte, Colorado because of the access to recreation. They believe it is going to be the next adventure mecca in Colorado.
“It’s totally undiscovered,” said local rider and farmer Jeff McCullough. “From the valley floor desert to the high alpine, there’s boating, fishing, mountain biking, camping, climbing, hiking – something for everybody.”
