The original settlers of Carbondale were attracted to this small mountain community for the temperate climate, mild winters, and close proximity to the Crystal River. These days, Carbondale is known as one of the nation’s best places to live, as ranked by Outside Magazine and National Geographic Adventure.
With sprawling ranch lands, lively waters and views of stunning Mount Sopris surrounding the town, residents today enjoy a friendly community filled with art galleries, casual eateries and an abundance of outdoor activities. With some of the area’s best hiking and biking trails as well as world class golf courses and Aspen’s four ski mountains just up the road, there’s plenty for everyone in Carbondale. The fastest growing community in the Roaring Fork Valley, Carbondale offers great opportunities for both a residence and an investment.
