Hayden Travel Guide, Colorado

The city of Hayden happens to be a Statutory Town which means that it has an elected Mayor and the Board of Trustees which is comprised of the Mayor and 4 to 6 elected members. It is the job of these people to govern the city. This applies in few cities of Colorado State and the city of Hayden is one of them. The city of Hayden is situated in the County of Routt.

This small city (or rather call it a town) is situated in the proximity of the famous United States Highway 40 and also in the proximity of the Yampa River. Its precise location is right between Steamboat and Craig Steams.

During its early years it was the huge presence of coal mines in and around the city which made this region very important for various businessmen. Soon many miners started to flock the city and the population of the newly created city started to grow. As of today the city of Hayden has small clusters of houses and various businesses which is enough to tag this place as a city.
