The Town of Basalt Nestled between the majestic Mount Sopris and Basalt Mountain, hiking and mountain biking trails abound through thousands of acres of pristine mountain wilderness. Anglers dance with the trout along the banks of two gold medal streams, the Roaring Fork and Frying Pan rivers. Amidst its beautiful surroundings and myriad of activities, Basalt still preserves its original, quaint charm. Located just sixteen miles from Aspen, historic Basalt flourishes with small fashion boutiques, new retail venues, galleries and some of the best restaurants in the Roaring Fork Valley.
