Pitkin, Colorado is twenty-six miles northeast of Gunnison in the Colorado Rockies, nestled between 11,000 foot mountains and beside Quartz Creek.  Each day in Pitkin is a new opportunity for things to do and places to explore!  With pleasant lodging, Pitkin is the perfect all-season vacation base to hike, fish, camp, bike, Jeep, horseback ride, or to relax and enjoy our spectacular scenery. 

FALL COLOR! Colorado aspen groves turning brilliant shades of color, Indian summer temperatures and a wide range of events and outdoor recreation combine to make September a month not to miss in Pitkin-Gunnison-Crested Butte, Colorado. With great Pitkin lodging options, this is the time to plan a long weekend getaway to the Rocky Mountains and experience a beautiful fall.

2014 is Pitkin’s 135th anniversary!
