Aptly named Blue River, this riverside community is nearly an extension of Breckenridge. It’s situated just south of town on U.S., heading to toward Fairplay.
In 2010 the population was 849. The town features a mix of permanent residences and vacation homes.
Mohawk Lake – Fish, hike or just soak in the views of this beautiful alpine lake, located west of town.
Fishing – Prize trout fishing can be found in Blue River, which flows from Breckenridge to the north. Mohawk Lake offers high altitude fishing as well.
