Hayden Meadows Recreation Area / Sawatch Interpretive Trail
Hayden Meadows Recreation Area is a wayside site in the Upper Arkansas Valley on the Top of the Rockies Scenic and Historic Byway. Located between Leadville and Buena Vista on reclaimed riverside land that had been polluted by runoff from upstream mining operations, the site offers a fully-accessible nature trail about a mile in length, a manmade fishing pond (also fully-accessible) of about seven acres and opportunities for world-class trout fishing in the Arkansas River.
