Just a short distance north of Fraser on Highway 40 is the tiny town of Tabernash. The mountains and national forests close by make for excellent hiking and other outdoor activities. It is at an elevation of 8,333 feet in Grand County, Colorado. The Tabernash Tavern is the only eating establishment in town. Located in the mountains between Granby and Fraser/Winter Park in northwest Colorado is the quaint town of Tabernash. Some of the things to do in the neighborhood are listed below.
Fishing. About ten miles to the northwest of town is Meadows Creek Reservoir. There are a number of tranquil spots to cast a line from shore for trout fishing, as the Fraser River and other tiny creeks flow through the area. You can go fishing at Lake Granby in about 25 minutes from Tabernash. Three boat ramps are available everyday, and visitors have reported that conditions are best in the mornings and evenings.
Hiking. The trailhead for the pleasant 1.2-mile out-and-back Fraser River Canyon may be found just north of town. True to its moniker, the High Lonesome Trailhead is lonely in all four seasons. This quiet logging road next to a placid brook is likely to be deserted.
Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park. More than 4.5 million people flock to Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado every year to see the park’s picture-perfect peaks, shimmering lakes, and intricate trail networks that wind through the park’s many ecosystems. The 415-square-mile high-country playground between Estes Park and Grand Lake is a year-round destination for outdoor enthusiasts, families, and photographers.
From Denver, it takes little under two hours, and from Boulder, it takes just over an hour to reach Rocky Mountain National Park. Longs Peak, which stands at 14,259 feet, may be climbed, backcountry camping is abundant, trails lead to waterfalls and alpine lakes, and there’s plenty of opportunity to spot wildlife. The park is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including over 3,000 elk, 400 bighorn sheep, and many mule deer and moose. Visit Moraine Park shortly after sunrise for optimal photo lighting and the chance to see enormous bugling elk. Visit Sheep Lakes between May and the middle of August to see bighorn sheep. Nearly 300 species of birds make Rocky Mountain National Park their permanent home or migratory stopover. In the winter, white-tailed ptarmigans are easily identifiable by their pure white plumage; but, in the summer, their characteristics become a mottled brown that allows them to mix in with lichen-spattered rocks.
