Basalt

A world-class fly-fishing and mountain biking destination with a fresh perspective.

Welcome to Basalt: This quiet, historic town is best known in Aspen as the site where two Gold Medal waters—the Roaring Fork and Fryingpan Rivers—converge. Basalt is both charming and energetic, where people still talk politics at the barbershop, love the outdoors, and shop at the local farmers’ market on Sunday mornings.

Attracted by more affordable real estate and an approachable lifestyle, you will often hear of Basalt residents who “moved down-valley” to buy a home and raise a family. Basalt is an outdoor and cultural destination that appreciates year-round amenities, good food, and strong community connections.
