The town featured here has got to be one of the most beautiful towns in the state. The town itself is quaint with a small population, but it’s one place that you should definitely visit.

In fact, there are about 51 miles of hiking trails throughout the area. Not to mention the endless skiing and snowboarding opportunities for powder-hounds.
