Welcome to Conifer
Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Conifer was originally called Bradford Junction and served as a stagecoach stop in the 1860s. By the 1920s it had adopted the name Conifer, no doubt due to its heavily wooded majestic mountain setting. Primarily a cattle ranching area in the early- to mid-20th century, the area still contains some ranch land and holds on to its rural roots, but boasts several new areas of commercial development including retail, restaurants, and entertainment. While most Conifer residents used to rely on frequent trips to Denver for work, shopping and dining, the town is becoming much more self-sustaining and a destination in its own right. Conifer is ideal for individuals and families looking to live a mountain lifestyle while staying close to the city. Residents enjoy a secluded, small town setting without losing the convenience of Denver. Ideally located in the Pike National Forest, skiers, snowboarders and wildlife enthusiasts love it for the easy access to hiking, camping and the slopes.
