When Discovery Channel founder John Hendricks first came to Gateway, CO in the mid 1990s he knew that he would someday make it his home. He was so moved by the beauty and history of the area that he felt compelled to share this special place with others too, so Hendricks created a sustainable, outdoor recreation resort that would highlight the beauty and endless adventures of the area – The Gateway Canyons Resort.  

The town of Gateway, home to Hendricks’ Gateway Canyons Resort, lies in one of the most unique red rock canyons in the world and the only canyon in the world that is drained by two creeks, sending water off in opposite directions. The town has a rich historical and cultural legacy to share with visitors as well. It is the native home to the Pueblo, Fremont, and Ute Native American Tribes, as well as American homesteaders who first came to the area in 1884. Guests to the Gateway Canyons Resort can enjoy an array of authentic Western activities like horseback riding, shooting, or other activities on the ranch. For the outdoor adventurist, try mountain biking, rock climbing, off-road Jeep tours or just exploring the ancient landscape. For those who are looking to relax, a full menu of options is available in the World-Class spa. And after a long day, dinner can be enjoyed at one of the unique Gateway Canyon restaurants or even outdoors under a canopy of a billion stars.
