Hiking in Vail is not as well known as skiing. This is a shame, as this mountain-lover’s paradise makes a great hiking base. Vail offers wonderful hiking, mountain biking, golfing, and fishing during the off-season. The town is surrounded by the White River National Forest. If you visit you’ll be offered great access to the Gore Mountain Range. A lot of people think it’s a perfect place to ski, and they’d be right; however, it also happens to be a perfect place to hike. Come in mid-June or early August to see the meadows of wildflowers bloom.
