Located 18 miles down valley from Aspen, Basalt is most known for its Gold Medal waters for trout fishing along the Frying Pan River, which runs through its quaint downtown along Midland Avenue to the confluence of the Roaring Fork River. In addition to taking advantage of the abundance of biking and hiking trails surrounding Basalt, locals love to shop and dine on Old Town Basalt’s historic Midland Avenue or head down Highway 82 to Willits Town Center — a newer development featuring modern lofts, a Whole Foods, day spas, restaurants and boutiques. Basalt also offers traditional single-family developments, ranching properties, fly fishing retreats and expansive estates in the sub-neighborhoods of Emma, W. Sopris Creek, Frying Pan and Reudi Reservoir, where you can enjoy every on-water activity.
