Steeped in history, the canyons and plateaus near Gateway were originally home to the ancient Pueblo, Fremont and Ute Native American tribes. The actual town of Gateway, Colorado traces its roots back to 1884 when the first homesteaders arrived in the area. The name Gateway was given to the town at the turn of the twentieth century, as it is the “gateway” to Colorado from neighboring Utah. Today, Gateway Canyons Resort acts as the cornerstone of the town, welcoming visitors from around the world to experience the unique and charming beauty of Western Colorado.
