Park County includes the incorporated towns of both Alma and Fairplay, and interestingly is the geographical center of Colorado. Alma is actually the highest incorporated town in all of North America, at 10,578 feet above sea level. A bit over an hour’s drive from Denver, and less than 40 minutes to Breckenridge, Park County is a great location in which to settle your family or create your mountain retreat.
With beautiful mountains and amazing prairies, Summer activities include hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, 4-wheel drive exploring over mountain passes, wildflower viewing, and horseback riding. Plus Mosquito Pass is the highest continuous road in North America at 13,000 feet above sea level and makes for a beautiful drive.
Winter sports include snowmobiling, snowshoeing, back country skiing, and ice fishing. And that’s in addition to skiing and snowboarding at the nearby ski resorts of Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper Mountain, and Arapahoe Basin.
Wildlife viewing on the open ranch lands include cattle, bison, deer, elk and antelope – plus in the forest you’ll find small animals like raccoons, squirrel, and foxes plus larger game like bears, moose, mountain lions and lynx.
