Welcome to Basalt

The town is tiny but blessed with a historic main-street strip, plenty of tasty dining options and a couple of cute boutiques (read: not Louis Vuitton or Prada). It's only 20 minutes from the Four Mountain slopes and another 20 to artsy Carbondale down valley; stock up on groceries and outdoor gear at the newer Willits Town Center, 4 miles northwest on Hwy 82. Basalt is also the gateway to little-visited Hunter-Fryingpan Wilderness area.
