A productive winter season translates into a gorgeous summer! While we wait for the last snow to melt off the Vail mountain peaks, there are plenty of early summer activities to take advantage of.
Hiking in Vail offers visitors the chance to explore the mountain and its beautiful surrounding areas. Three early summer hikes we recommend are: Shrine Ridge Trail, Meadows Loop Trail, and Berry Picker. These hikes range in difficulty from easy to challenging and offer spectacular views with wildflower meadows.
An amazing snowfall season means epic whitewater rafting in Colorado! The Eagle River is a favorite among raft guides and is located within a 15 minute drive from Vail. Composed of three sections, this river offers plenty of difficult whitewater rapids for experienced rafters in addition to calmer waters for families and beginners.
Biking is a great early summer activity! Rent a road bike and explore the town of Vail along the scenic Gore Creek trail. Mountain bikers will fall in love with the world-class mountain biking in Eagle featuring 100 miles of single-track riding. All Eagle trails are open and located right off the I-70, only a 30 minute drive from Vail!
Fly fishing and horseback riding are very popular and being offered right now in Vail. Hop in the saddle or cast your rod against the scenic backdrop of the Rockies!
