Magical hiking trail in the High Country

BRECKENRIDGE –In the mountains near Breckenridge where the trees grow tall is a village where the houses are very, very small.

It’s called the Fairy Forest. For kids like 9-year-old Brynn Goldfain, it’s on a trail that can be a really good time. There are dozens and dozens of houses, some with a pool.

The trail steps lead to a more magical moment that only a fairy village brings full of happy fairy things.

Even Brynn’s dad was excited to see a network of small wooden tree house bridges.

How this village got here is a mystery for most, but not to Mai Ly Hagan who lives down the trail. She says the Fairy Forest was started by a neighbor and added to by other kin.

“They started doing it a few years ago and eventually other neighbors joined in,” Hagen said.

All of it is free, just don’t take anything. The fairies want you to leave it where it’s at so others like Brynn and her family can keep coming back to see new things.

If you’re looking for the Fairy Forest, it’s in Breckenridge. The easiest way to see it is to drive to 4 O’Clock Road and park at the base of the Snowflake lift.

Walk up the road from there, and when you see trail signs for 4 O’clock trail take it and follow it up the hill until you see the Fairy Forest sign.
