Bordered by cliffs on the north, Byers Canyon to the east, the Colorado and Blue Rivers to the south, Heeney Colorado also to the south, and Rabbit Ears recreation area to the west, Kremmling has long been a playground for anglers, hunters, and outdoor enthusiasts. The untamed, untapped wilderness areas led the community to dub West Grand county the “Sportman’s Paradise.” Visitors can also enjoy the stunning mountain views from a raft while running the Colorado River – which is headwatered in the Kremmling area.

Trails begin at town limits, and stretch six miles west to Wolford Mountain.
