Bailey, Co. is situated along a scenic curve in the South Platte River. Rustic Bailey serves up healthy meals and beautiful alpine scenery. Its mountain backdrop lends a particular charm to this sleepy mountain town.

Ann and William Bailey settled a ranch and built a stage station known as Bailey's Ranch in 1864. The Baileys built a hotel at the station, and the town eventually became known as Bailey. The Denver & South Park Railroad reached Bailey in 1878, and the Bailey Post Office opened on November 20, 1878.

Five acres at self-guided McGraw Park feature several historic structures, including an 1864 log cabin and a one-room schoolhouse from 1894. The park leads to a trail offering another 10 acres for exploration. Bailey sits just inside the Lost Creek Wilderness Area in the Pike National Forest, where week-long backpacking trips and day hikes are popular. The logging roads and pack trails crisscrossing the area's hilly terrain are a mountain biker's dream and first-rate fly-fishing opportunities abound.
