"My favorite little mountain town." Rollinsville by caffeine_induced78

Rollinsville Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 2 photos

Where the tracks run side by side.

It's not hard to find the quiet little mountain towns in Colorado. You just have to pick a place on a map that does not have a ski area close by. Rollinsville is a town like this. For me it is the start of my favorite little corner - the Upper South Boulder Creek valley. If you think that only the big cities have anything to do in them then this is not the place for you. Here you will find some small workshops, a post office, a bar / restaurant, and a general store. In the future I would love to visit the town called Wingello that Jen (craic) has made famous on VT. In the meantime this is how I imagine Wingello - except Rollinsville has more snow and less horses.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Just the right size, very friendly locals.
  • Cons:It can get very windy.
  • In a nutshell:a quiet Colorado mountain town.

    Sorry to say, but as of May 2008, the restaurant has been closed and it is for sale. Too bad, hopefully there will be new owners soon, it is such a great location for this bar/restaurant.
