Since 2001, JFK has awarded over $2 million in support of the youth of the San Miguel Watershed.
The Gateway Community Center is surrounded by BLM Land. Camping options are abundant, though transportation to campgrounds is required. We are working on locking in a group campground for the evening of the race. In the meantime, click to learn about camping opportunities in Gateway and in Telluride.
