Redstone is a tiny mountain village with a fascinating past, located on the banks of the Crystal River about thirty miles south of Glenwood Springs. Called "the Colorado town that time forgot," and "the Ruby of the Rockies," Redstone was developed by a turn-of-the-twentieth-century industrialist, John Cleveland Osgood as a company town for employees of his coal empire. Osgood constructed 84 cottages to house coal mine workers and their families, and a 40-room inn was built just for his bachelor employees. For his wife, Osgood built "Cleveholm Manor," an opulent 42-room mansion, now commonly referred to as "the Redstone Castle." Surrounded by towering red cliffs along Colorado's West Elk Scenic Byway, the entire town of Redstone is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In Redstone, a pedestrian bridge connects two parks across the Crystal River. Redstone Park is located in the center of town and offers a playground, picnic areas and benches and the historic Redstone Museum. Redstone has art galleries, boutiques and antique stores, and fine restaurants, all set against the beautiful, pristine mountain wilderness. With its' location on the edge of the White River National Forest, abundant recreational activities are in the area, such as fly-fishing, whitewater rafting and kayaking, camping, horseback riding, ice climbing, cross-country skiing, horse-drawn sleigh rides and backcountry jeep tours. The town of Redstone is host to the annual Sled Dog Races, usually held the end of January.

Redstone Weather & Climate

Northwestern Colorado has a highland, alpine mountain cliamte. Having the highest average elevation in the United States, combined with complex topography, results in dramatic climate changes from place to place. A general rule of thumb is the higher the elevation, the lower the temperature with an increase in precipitation. Northwest Colorado has snowy winters and mild summers. In years when snow cover is heavy at high elevations, or when there is a sudden warming in the spring at high elevations, flooding may be a problem. Thunderstorms are possible in spring and summer. Hail is common in the northwest part of the state. Autumn means crisp, dry days with lots of sunshine and cool nights. Spring and autumn weather can change rapidly.
