Fairplay is known as the official Trout Fishing Capital of Colorado. Anglers, be sure to bring your fishing gear, as you’ll want to throw a line in more than 50 miles of Gold Medal trout streams. These streams offer the highest quality trout habitat and the greatest potential for angling success in Colorado. Hikers, mountain bikers, hunters, OHVers, and more find plenty of quiet places to keep them busy as well. Tie Hack trail is a good spot just outside town that leads hikers and snowshoers along old logging roads, and Limber Grove Trail passes through a grove of ancient and twisted Bristlecone pine trees.
Fairplay and the surrounding 1,000 square miles are part of the South Park National Heritage Area. Designated by Congress, each of the 49 National Heritage Areas in the United States tells a nationally important story through their distinctive landscapes, historic structures, and recreational resources. South Park’s 19th-century ranches, many old mines, and other historic sites are the primary reason the area was given this designation in 2009. In Fairplay itself, be sure to visit the South Park City Museum, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It has a main street flanked by 40 or so historic buildings brought here from the surrounding area including a trapper’s cabin, a saloon, a general store, a blacksmith shop, and other businesses that thrived in the late 1800s. This amazing collection is only open during the summer months and is run entirely by volunteers. You will also find art galleries and open-air art venues abound in and around the town proper.
