Genesee for Sale & Real Estate

Genesee is a quaint town in Jefferson County— while it’s only 6.7 square miles in total, it offers a lot in terms of location and proximity to the beautiful Rocky Mountains and the bustling Denver urban scene. Just 19 miles outside the city, it’s both in the backyard of Denver and tucked away in the privacy of the mountains (1).

There are many beloved spots for locals to take advantage of Genesee’s breathtaking mountain scenery. The hiking trails consist of a network of paths including but not limited to Genesee Summit trail, American Bison trail, and Chief Hosa trail (2). They’re perfect for the amateur outdoorsman and the hardcore adventurer alike. Furthermore, Genesse is only 8 miles away from Morrison, Colorado and the historic Red Rocks Amphitheater. Seeing a concert there is a one of a kind experience, and for those who aren’t music aficionados, the site offers yoga, a film series, and an array of other activities that take place directly on the breathtaking rock formations. Genesee is just far enough away to avoid hearing the constant noise of musical acts, but close enough to frequent one’s favorite artists and activities without having to think twice!

Genesee houses are typically in wooded areas, surrounded by an ample amount of trees and wildlife. For those who enjoy the beauty of having a truly natural backyard, this town is a perfect fit!
