DescriptionDillon is a resort town. Many year-round recreational activities are available along the Dillon Reservoir's 25-mile shoreline. Mountain scenery of the Arapaho and Roosevelt and White River national forests surrounds the community.
East of Dillon on I-70, the 1.5-mile Eisenhower-Edwin C. Johnson Memorial Tunnel burrows through the heart of Mount Trelease. Besides being a milestone in highway engineering, the tunnel bypasses US 6 and the 11,992-foot Loveland Pass, which is often hazardous in winter.
