Cotopaxi LODGING AND activities

Nestled in south central Colorado, Cotopaxi is a small rural town that sprung up along the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad and the river. Although there isn’t much commercial activity in the area apart from tourism, ranchers, and a general store, the residents appreciate the country living and the serene natural surroundings away from the hustle and bustle of urban areas. Unfortunately, most travelers passing through this area along Highway 50 rarely stop to explore the town.
