Basalt

Basalt

Nestled between the majestic Sopris and Basalt mountains, cross-country skiing, hiking and mountain biking trails abound through thousands of acres of pristine mountain wilderness. Today, Basalt is known as a vacation mecca for families and sports enthusiasts. Located between Glenwood Springs and Aspen, world-class skiing and cultural opportunities are only minutes away. Amid the myriad of activities, Basalt still preserves it original, quaint charm. This fishing paradise sits at the confluence of two Gold Medal rivers, the Frying Pan River and the Roaring Fork River, which appropriately roar out of the Sawatch Range east of Aspen. The Roaring Fork’s waters slow considerably as they reach Basalt, entering town with a pleasant gurgle. Look for serious whitewater rafting and kayaking from west of Aspen to Basalt, while leisurely float trips drift down the 12-mile lower part of the Roaring Fork, from Basalt to Carbondale. Ruedi Reservoir offers the most beautiful setting for windsurfing, sailing and skiing. Nearby White River National Forest, which blankets Basalt on both sides, is ideal for fishing or hiking. There is also very hospitable lodging right in town and within walking distance to great shopping and dining. More than 20 restaurants and countless boutiques and specialty stores complete the serene scene.

Silverton

Silverton

Tiny and nestled between two rugged San Juan Mountain passes, Red Mountain and Molas, Silverton has been a beloved destination since its mining days. Many visit Silverton to board the northern terminus on the beautiful Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad tour. Challenging mountain biking is found all around Silverton on old mining roads that today serve as excellent four-wheel routes, too. The Alpine Loop Scenic Byway, over two passes to Ouray and Lake City, is a top four-wheel excursion. Hiking trails are accessible in the surrounding San Juan National Forest, including easy access to the Continental Trail in the Weminuche Wilderness. Silverton’s best family destination in winter is Kendall Mountain, with ski lift tickets under $20, as well as rentals of sleds, ice skates, snowshoes and tubes. For the more intrepid skiers and snowboarders, Silverton Mountain is Colorado’s highest and steepest ski mountain, with un-groomed, no-easy-way-down expert terrain. For something even more extreme, the resort’s heli-skiing program gives you the kind of access you’ve only seen in Warren Miller movies. Most of the downtown in a designated National Historic District and the San Juan County Historical Society, in the old county jail, is good for uncovering the past. Three other historic venues make for interesting stops: Old Hundred Gold Mine, Mayflower Gold Mill National Historic Site and the Victorian Grand Imperial Hotel.

Guanella Pass Scenic and Historic Byway

Guanella Pass Scenic and Historic Byway

Bighorn sheep, golden eagles and the occasional mountain goat can all be seen on the jaunt up this pass from Georgetown to Grant. At the summit, views stretch toward a craggy and eroded peak known as The Sawtooth, as well as Mount Bierstadt, a 14,060-foot peak that is one of the state’s most accessible fourteeners.

Georgetown

Georgetown

If they made a movie about early mining towns, Georgetown could be the star. The active Historic Georgetown, Inc. seees that it stays that way, and the Georgetown-Silver Plume National Historic Landmark District recalls the days of the silver boom in this area, located just 45 minutes west of Denver. You’ll find artifacts from the era preserved at the Hotel de Paris, now a museum, and see how the well-to-do lived at the historic Hamill House Museum. Once the third-largest town in Colorado, Georgetown is now home to slightly more than 1,000 residents. But on weekends, its capacity overflows with visitors who want to shop, sightsee, have lunch or spend the night at a Victorian bed-and-breakfast inn. The Georgetown Loop Railroad is a major attraction here, and takes visitors on a round-trip narrow-gauge steam train ride from Georgetown to nearby Silver Plume and back, with an optional stop for a tour of the Lebanon Silver Mine. Near town is the breathtaking Guanella Pass Scenic Byway, which at its 11,600-foot summit might leave you breathless. If wildlife watching is your passion, stop at the Georgetown Wildlife Viewing Area for a glimpse of one of the hundreds of bighorn sheep living in the area.

Bailey

Bailey

Situated along a scenic curve in the South Platte River, rustic Bailey serves up healthy doses of beautiful canyon scenery. Its mountain-wilderness backdrop lends a particular charm to this sleepy mountain town. The five-acre McGraw Park features several historic structures, including an 1864 log cabin and a one-room schoolhouse from 1894. The park leads to a trail offering another 10 acres for nature exploration. Recent improvements to the park include picnic facilities, trout-fishing enhancements and a whitewater kayak launch. Bailey sits just outside the Lost Creek Wilderness Area in the Pike National Forest, where week-long backpacking trips and day hikes are popular. The logging roads and pack trails crisscrossing the area’s hilly terrain are a mountain biker’s dream and first-rate fly-fishing opportunities abound. If your stomach’s begging for a pit stop, the local eateries should satisfy the craving. Whether you stop in Bailey for a quick lunch or a week-long excursion, be on the lookout — a herd of bighorn sheep live in the mountains just outside town.
