Rico, Colorado is a laid-back mountain town with unlimited outdoor recreational opportunities. We’ve got epic high-alpine mountain biking trails, scenic and uncrowded nordic and fat bike trails and endless opportunities for exploring our unspoiled mountains on foot. And what better way to end your adventure than a soak in the incredible natural Rico hot springs.
This charming former mining town situated in the remote southwestern part of Colorado (only 35 miles from busy Telluride) reveals much of a bygone lifestyle. Historic buildings still dot the main street, and many have been refurbished to house new businesses. For those who love quiet mountains more than busy resorts, Rico will certainly satisfy!
