Cimarron Creek New Ownership

Hard to say goodbye after 20 years, but the shop is being left in capable hands with a new name: TOADS GUIDE SHOP

Tim Kenney is the new owner, and has years of experience guiding both the Gunnison Gorge and all of our walk-wade waters as well as guiding rafting and hunting trips. His new shop is located in the Downtown Mercantile building at 309 East Main Street in Montrose.

Toads Guide Shop is currently offering guided trips and has access to some spectacular private water.
