Hayden Reviews

1 review
I moved to Hayden to enjoy Northwest Colorado at the same time as racing mountain bikes across the state. I found that it is a great family oriented town that cares about itself and its residents. Surrounded by rolling mountains, great skiing and warm summers, it provides one of the best mountain vacation areas in the world. Tourism is calm, constant, and welcomed here. Even with the amount of tourists it still seems like a small town environment and there is rarely ever a frown on any face. Even when I move to continue my education, I will forever come back to visit and reminisce the amazing summer evenings I will forever cherish.
