Hayden Neighborhoods

For those looking to move to Hayden, there are several neighborhoods and areas in Town that make for a great place to live. There are four major sections of Town.

Highway 40 Corridor & Historic Downtown

This neighborhood runs the length of U.S. Highway 40 and extends north to the railroad tracks and south to the Breeze Basin Road and the base of the Hospital Hill neighborhood. Hayden (incorporated 1906) originally developed in a lot and block grid system, using the flattest, most easily accessible ground. Some of the oldest homes in Hayden are in this neighborhood. 

U.S. Highway 40 doubles as our main street (named Jefferson Avenue), as it runs east/west through town. This downtown area contains most of the commercial development in Hayden.

Hospital Hill

Hospital Hill is a largely residential neighborhood located on a prominent hill south and adjacent to Historic Walnut Street and Downtown Hayden. It offers scenic views overlooking downtown. The neighborhood is named for the Solandt Hospital located on the hillside leading up to the neighborhood. While it is no longer a hospital, medical services, including dental, continue to be provided in the facility. This neighborhood was largely built in the late 1950s and 1960s and has a mix of single-family and multi-family housing. This neighborhood is also well known for its gardening resources, with some residents growing fruit trees, grapes and more. The town cemetery is also located on the east end. 

Subdivisions in the Hospital Hill area include:

Golden Meadows & Lake Villages

Golden Meadows is located south of old town, and was built during the energy boom of the 1970s. Largely single-family homes, there are a few small condominiums and townhome projects located in the area. In the last two decades, the majority of residential development interest has occurred in the Golden Meadows area. 

The Golden Meadows neighborhood includes the West Routt Fire Station, Hayden Valley Elementary, and the Dry Creek Recreation Park, adjacent to the Routt County Fairgrounds. 

The subdivisions in this area include:

Dry Creek

Dry Creek is located southeast of old town and is one of two active building subdivisions in Town. All single-family homes range from new to moderately new and range in price from $300-$325K for a brand new home. Dry Creek is located next to the Hayden 4-mile trail loop and is just 3 miles from the State of Colorado shooting range.

Rural Hayden

Hayden is surrounded by a working landscape of ranches and farms, and many idyllic residences are just outside of the community.
