NEARBY TOWN

Fairplay is the closest town to get any supplies you may need. It has everything you would need during your stay. Fairplay is known as the official Trout Fishing Capital of Colorado. Anglers, be sure to bring your fishing gear, as you’ll want to throw a line in more than 50 miles of Gold Medal trout streams. By definition, these streams offer the highest quality trout habitat and greatest potential for angling success in Colorado. Hikers, mountain bikers, hunters, OHVers and more find plenty of quiet places to keep them busy as well. Fairplay and the surrounding 1,000 square miles are part of the South Park National Heritage Area. Designated by Congress, each of 49 National Heritage Areas in the U.S. tells a nationally important story through their distinctive landscapes, historic structures and recreational resources. South Park's 19th-century ranches, many old mines and other historic sites are the primary reason the area was given this designation in 2009.

Sightseeing

Really great place to get a high alpine environment experience. This would be a good place for kids. Little bit of a rough road getting up to it but cars can make it and it’s quite popular. There is generally snow year round at least up on the surrounding peaks. This little lake is at the base of 4 fourteeners! If you’ve got a four wheel drive vehicle there is a road off the way up to Kite Lake that will bring you to Windy Ridge Bristlecone Pine Scenic Area. Really amazing place with trees that are over one thousand years old!e

Really awesome place to see a small river coming out of the mountains with an old abandoned mill. Really great place for pictures and great for kids. Very short hike to the mill and plenty hiking beyond the mill.

This is your closest chance to hike a fourteener. It’s rated as one of the “easier” fourteeners but you should be in good shape to try it. Especially because of the altitude.

Best (and only real place) to get groceries nearby. Your other options would be City Market in Buena Vista or Breckenridge. Both are about the same distance from the house but Buena Vista will be WAY less busy, especially in winter.

Farther Away Great Places

These are places we highly recommend that could easily be day trips that we feel are really worth checking out.
Really cool place in the huge San Luis valley. Beautiful drive to get there with the Sangre de Cristo mountains in view the entire drive once you get to the valley. During the summer a great side trip to the dunes would be Zapata Falls. Fairly short hike once you get to the top of the road but you can’t see the falls unless you walk through the small river a short distance. But the water will be the coldest water you’ve ever been in even in late summer. But if you can brave the cold water (only your feet) the reward is out of this world I promise.

About an hours drive to see some really big fossilized redwood stumps. Not overly amazing but worth seeing if you have the time.
