Living in Evergreen and Confier
Few locations compare to all the great things these unique mountain towns offer to their residents. With world class skiing, hiking, fishing and mountain activities to the west, and urban energy, nightlife, restaurants, and entertainment to the east, the people who live in Evergreen and Conifer have everything to their hearts’ desire, outside their front and back doors.
Both mountain towns, within a few miles of the Denver metro area, are surrounded by thousands of acres of land in the Denver Mountain Parks and Jefferson County Open Space park systems. Hiwan Golf Club, a country club located just east of Bergen Park, is a favorite Colorado country club. Popular both in the summer and the winter, Evergreen Lake and its “Lake House” are recreational focal points for the area. The lake was created by damming Bear Creek in 1927. It sits above downtown Evergreen, and features a perfect venue for skating, hockey and wintertime events. A mix of historic buildings and local businesses are within close proximity of the community lake, including the well-known entertainment venue and restaurant The Little Bear.
Conifer is an equally appealing mountain town as Evergreen, but further from the “beaten path”. Originally known in the 1860s as Bradford Junction (a stagecoach stop), Conifer has claimed its own charm and identity during the past 150-plus years, making it a Colorado-gem of its own.
