Welcome to Pinon Ridge Observatory
We wanted a place with dark skies that could be dedicated to viewing. Pinon Ridge Observatory was built to be such a place.
It is located at 7200 feet above sea level on 35 secluded acres in the piñon / juniper forest, 13 miles southwest of Montrose in southwestern Colorado. It features a roll-off room on the second floor, with a heated living area and storage area on the first floor.
