Basalt, CO

Basalt is truly a delightful town to raise a family!

Basalt is a progressive community situated at the heart of the Roaring Fork Valley on Colorado’s Western Slope.   Located at the confluence of two Gold medal trout streams, the Fryingpan and the Roaring Fork River, this small mountain town provides big opportunity for both outdoor adventure and downtown charm. 

If you are looking to spend your day downtown you will be happy to find charming cafes, tempting restaurants, beautiful galleries, stylish salons, welcoming yoga studios, and so much more. Looking for more action?…  Miles of breathtaking biking trails, invigorating hikes, fly fishing, river rafting galore, and with access to Reudi Reservoir- even water skiing!

Conveniently situated at the middle of the valley, Basalt allows quick and easy access to our neighboring communities of Aspen, Carbondale, and Glenwood Springs. Basalt is a mecca for young families and offers welcoming subdivisions allowing us to visit and connect with our neighbors.  From Old Town, to Southside, Elk Run to Willits – there are parks, picnic tables, and  sporting fields abound, really providing the space and capability to connect as a community.
