Take your summer fun seriously? Winter Park understands. With more than 600 miles of trails to choose from and direct lift-access to Winter Park’s Trestle Bike Park, dirt riders have some serious exploration cut out for them.
This relatively small Colorado mountain town, located at the southern end of the Fraser Valley, is approximately one hour from the Colorado River. Rafting, kayaking, and stand up paddling are a few of the many ways to experience the river. For a mellower day on the water, nearby Grand Lake and Shadow Mountain Lake offer boating, water skiing and sailing. Other summer activities include hot-air balloon rides, fishing, horseback riding, zipline tours and the longest alpine slide in the state.
