Established in 1918, this scenic town (think Northern Exposure and a resident moose) shows the way to some of Colorado’s most famous and beautiful areas. Sitting at the base of craggy, 14,255-foot Longs Peak, Allenspark homes are built in high alpine meadows, glacial basins and deep pine forests.
Allenspark sits at the national park’s southeast corner, along the breathtaking Peak-to-Peak Highway. The highway itself is 55 miles of curves and scenery rivaling the postcards from Estes Park, 12 miles to the north.
In addition to visiting Rocky Mountain National Park – Wild Basin is just down the road – visitors enjoy horseback riding at many nearby stables. Fishing during summer months, and cross-country skiing in the winter makes the town an attractive year-round destination. While peak tourist season occurs during the summer months, this town’s hiking trails, located at an altitude of 8,500 feet, provide wonderful views of the changing aspen trees in autumn.
