    Head to Montrose, only twenty miles out of Ridgway, for lots of outdoor adventures. Your dog will have a great time at Baldridge Park, a lakeside park that features a sports center, disc golf, skate park, and open fields. There is a great walking trail along the Uncompahgre River where Fido can get some water and splash around. The Ute Park also sits along the river and has a great open field for fetch, a gazebo for shade, and a trail with a bridge that goes over the river. Rotary Park is a smaller park in Montrose that has benches and offers a small pond. There is plenty of grass for fetch but the park does not have a walking trail for you and your pup. Take your dog to Altrusa Park for some exercise. The park is filled with hills for Fido to run along and their amenities include benches, a playground, a large open field, and plenty of trees for shade. If Fido would rather spend his time exploring, then head out onto the West Main Trail Head, aka the Uncompahgre River Walk. This pawsome trail is 14.4-miles long with a 387-foot elevation gain on an out and back route. The trail will take you past a river and is perfect for all skill levels, just make sure you keep your pup on a leash while exploring. All of these dogtastic parks and trails are located in Montrose, and only twenty miles out of Ridgway.
