1. Bridal Veil Falls (Telluride)
What better place to begin a Colorado waterfall tour than a stunning cascade near a beautiful town? Considered the tallest free-falling waterfall in Colorado, Bridal Veil Falls is a massive 365-foot stream that really has to be seen to be believed!
Address: Telluride, CO, 81436
2. Cornet Creek Falls (Telluride)
Also located near Telluride, Cornet Creek Falls can be accessed via a short and sweet 0.25-mile hike that leads from downtown Telluride to the dainty falls - as well as its surrounding red cliffs and birds-eye views! (Please note: The hike may be short but consists of loose gravel, so wear sturdy shoes while walking.)
Address: Telluride, CO, 81435
3. Chipeta Falls (Gunnison)
Nestled away in the Curecanti National Recreation Area, Chipeta Falls is tiny but mighty, as the delicate cascade shoots from rocky and dramatic canyon walls. While visiting, we recommend setting aside a little time to take a boat tour, which gets you up close to not only the falls, but other stunning parts of the upper Black Canyon.
Address: 102 Elk Creek, Gunnison, CO, 81230
4. Mountain View Winery (Olathe)
If you crave "flavors of the tree as well as the vine," your taste buds will thank you for visiting Mountain View, which offers a huge selection of locally-made wines, a tasting room, and - you guessed it - beautiful mountain views!
Address: 5859 58.25 Road, Olathe, CO, 81425
5. Whitewater Hill Vineyards (Grand Junction)
Overlooking both the vineyards and Grand Valley, a visit Whitewater Hill is the perfect place to spend an unforgettable afternoon. While you're sipping on one of the Vineyards' many delicious wines, take a little time to kick back and relax... you've earned it!
Address: 220 32 Road, Grand Junction, CO, 81503
6. Wine Country Inn (Palisade)
What better place to end than a winery, restaurant, AND hotel? Welcome to the Wine Country Inn; a luxurious yet affordable hotel that offers clean and comfortable rooms, complimentary wine receptions and tastings, and even a world-class restaurant just steps away from your room.
