There are "trendy" neighborhoods in those areas but you are going to pay out of your ass to live there.
Thanks for the tip. Will check it out.

Ha! I live in A-Town fairly close to the Anschutz medical campus there. The Cedar Creek pub is on rotation for us and there is a micro brewery opening just across from them call Coda.

Anyway, I do have to say I would not buy around Colfax. The Stapleton redevelopment area is nice and very close. It also has great highway access to I70. Making your tip up to the mountains fairly direct.

An up and coming area seems to be between 11th and Alameda. Though it may never happen. You can definitely find a lot of house for your buck in that area.

The other nice thing is airport access is quick and easy. You are across town from the mountains, that is the drawback. I don't find it horrible.

Did I mention all the micro breweries? There are some wineries not that far off too...

For the most part I would try to stay west of I225. You can find decent living close to the CU campus. If you find some areas you are interested in you can PM me. I've been in the Denver area a long time. I know most of the neighborhoods in the area until you get North of 120th.

I know you were talking about backcountry access. It's about 90 minutes to Bert from that area. There is also a strong contingent of splitters in the area. Hike for Turns and Zach live in the area. I think I also count...

Really excited to get into splitting along with even hitting A basin and Loveland. Fly fishing, hiking, off-roading...
