It's time to start planning!
Let the Adventure Begin
With miles and miles of trails to explore in the Colorado mountains, Vail Valley’s local hikes are some of the most beautiful and accessible in the state. From June through September, a range of options takes hikers through wildflower fields, under canopies of shimmering aspen tree leaves, and to the top of mountain peaks. We’ve put together a short list of trails to check out this summer to fit every mood and skill level. No matter how much of a pro or newbie you are, wear appropriate footwear and keep these other tips in mind when you hit the trails!
• 0-2 hours: Water, some crackers and a couple of granola bars.
• 2-4 hours: More water, some fruit, trail mix and chips or crackers.
•4-6 hours: Lots of water, with a full lunch that includes a sandwich, fruit, electrolyte drink, and a salty snack.
