Tour of the Trails Edge Collection

Jul 1, 2022 • Denver Area, CO

The 1859 Pike's Peak Gold Rush brought fortune seekers to the Rocky Mountains, with many merchants and farmers settling in what would become the charming city of Littleton. That same frontier spirit inspired Solstice, a master-planned community near Littleton that promises fabulous amenities including a clubhouse, a resort-style pool, and outdoor gathering areas. The Trails Edge Collection at Solstice™ takes its name not only from the trails available in nearby Chatfield State Park, but also from the trails forged by the adventurous souls who settled the area. Read on for an overview of the five two-story floorplans that make up this special collection.
