Grant

Grant

Set in the mountains just south of the Mount Evans Wilderness Area, the small towns of Shawnee and Grant consist of a couple of restaurants surrounded by rustic lodges and guest ranches. The drive along U.S. 285, a former railroad line serving Denver, features mountain vistas, winding canyons, quaking aspens and craggy granite outcroppings. The scenic roadway is especially stunning during the changing of aspen leaves in late September. The South Platte River follows the highway, making Shawnee a popular fishing destination. If you’re in the area, visit the Shawnee Tea Room or the shady Glen Isle Resort, now on the National Register of Historic Places. A turn onto County Road 62 in Grant leads to a dirt road winding to the top of Guanella Pass, via the Guanella Pass Scenic and Historic Byway, and down the paved side into historic Georgetown. This road affords superb views of changing aspens each fall. Just beyond Grant, U.S. 285 climbs to 10,000-foot Kenosha Pass, a mecca for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. This mountain pass also provides a spectacular vista of the South Park National Heritage Area. The famed 500-mile Colorado Trail crosses the highway here and winds its way into the resort town of Breckenridge, while to the south of Grant awaits the Pike National Forest, some of the best mountain hiking in the state.

Cache la Poudre River

Cache la Poudre River

Colorado’s only nationally designated Wild and Scenic River carves down Poudre Canyon through narrow sections flanked by natural rock cliffs. The triumph of paddling over a rapid named Devil’s Staircase is second only to the views and the chance to spot bighorn sheep and deer scampering along its rocky hills.

Eagles Nest Wilderness

Eagles Nest Wilderness

There are so many 12,000- and 13,000-foot-high peaks in this wilderness area that many of them haven’t even been given names. Rock climbers revel in the countless number of vertical faces and the relative isolation of the incredibly rugged area.

Dillon

Dillon

Just down I-70 from famed Summit County ski areas Copper Mountain, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin and Breckenridge, snow riders find in Dillon a great pit stop and a close place to stay after a day on the mountain. There isn’t an old-fashioned main street here, but the well-designed, environmentally sensitive town quickly sweeps you into the pines, and several shops and restaurants are easy to come by. Thanks in part to its pristine reservoir, Lake Dillon, this town has activities galore in the summer. With 26 miles of shoreline surrounded by a breathtaking mountainous backdrop, the reservoir is perfect for boating, sailing, walking and picnicking. There are several boat-launch ramps and two marinas where you can rent rigs, and the Dillon Marina even offers a sailing school and charter cruises. With stocked salmon, cutthroat and brook trout, the fishing is great too, especially just as the ice thaws.

Heeney

Heeney

The original town of Heeney was an offshoot of the dam construction that took place here in the 1930s. Since then, the sleepy community by the Green Mountain Reservoir has catered to boaters, hunters, hikers, fishers, campers and four-wheel-drive enthusiasts. A small marina rents boats, and the local general store is the place to stock up on food and fishing supplies for extended trips. Anglers can reel in fish at the reservoir, along the Blue River or at the remote, glacially formed Cataract Lake. Visitors can even hang-glide from the Blue Ridge above the Green Mountain Reservoir or hike the trails in the adjacent Eagle’s Nest Wilderness. Although the reservoir is a hidden gem for boaters, during drought years it is used exclusively for water storage. In this area, lodging takes the form of cozy rental cabins and the Green Mountain Inn, which also serves up hearty meals in its restaurant. This lakeside town’s most famous event is the Heeney Tick Festival, which honors a pioneer woman’s comeback from a nasty bug bite with a parade, food and drink, games, music and, of course, the crowning of the Tick Queen and King.

Avon

Avon

Nestled in the Eagle River Valley, at the base of Beaver Creek Resort and eight miles west of Vail, Avon is known as the heart of the valley and a great base for launching mountain adventures in skiing, hiking, paddling and more. With 6,500 year-round residents, plus another 3,500 part-time residents, Avon offers a multitude of recreational opportunities, special events, parks, open space and trails, and a mix of local and national shops and restaurants. In the summer, the 48-acre Harry A. Nottingham Park offers fun for the whole family. Rent a paddle boat, fish in the lake, walk around the park or just relax on the grass and bask in the sunshine. The town loves to celebrate the holidays with events such as Salute to the USA, the largest fireworks to display in the Colorado Rockies; an annual egg hunt; Dunk-n-Dash, a duathlon race series; and Lakeside Cinema, which offers free family movies in the park. In the winter, Avon is a centralized location for snow-oriented activities, including iceskating and old-fashioned pond hockey on Nottingham Lake. A quick trip on the free Gondola Express shuttle bus brings you to Avon Station, where you can catch the Riverfront Express high-speed gondola directly to Beaver Creek Landing, putting you on the slopes in minutes.
