When I get asked about Vail and things too do, I naturally pick things in East Vail because that is my neighborhood. Of the many things East Vail has to offer, it’s hiking trails are legendary. With many waterfalls, there are several trails that are easy enough for most people to enjoy. One of my favorite trails is the Deluge Lake Trail, which can be found at the end of Bighorn Road off the Vail Pass path. For many in this part of East Vail, you can walk out your front door and be to the trail entrance via a few minute walk. The hike is a 9 mile round trip that will take you deep into the classic Colorado Rockies. Starting through beautiful meadows filled with wildflowers, the hike ends at Deluge Lake which is surrounded by rocky peaks. This is not an easy hike. If you just get to Vail, give yourself a day or so to acclimate to the altitude before taking this on. If you are interested in learning about buying a home in East Vail, or elsewhere in the Vail Valley, please contact Jason Peters at 720.838.8418.

Hiking in and around the Vail Valley is some of those most recreational fun one can have! With endless scenery of mountain tops and lush greenery you can definitely quiet your mind in this spectacular abyss.

Image result for best vail hikes

While not in the real estate office located in the heart of Vail in Vail Village; brokers with Gateway Land & Development enjoy heading out to the trail! There are tons of local options for hiking; here are our favorite!

Grouse Lake Trail (Minturn):  No need to drive up Tigiwon Road for this one – the Grouse Lake trailhead is located just before the town of Minturn.  When I first moved to the valley it was by far my favorite hike and still holds a special place in my heart.  It is 4.6 miles to the lake which, in my opinion, is one of the prettiest lakes in the valley.

Gore Creek/ Lake Trail (East Vail):  The beauty of this trail is that you can go for as short or long as you like (5.5 miles to Gore Lake) and there is pretty scenery the entire way.  You’ll spend most of the hike listening to the sounds of Gore Creek as you walk beside it and there is lots of shade to keep you cooler.

Shrine Ridge (Vail Pass):  This is a great hike mid-summer during wildflower season when the meadows are awash with color.  Temps are cooler up high (starts around 11,000 ft) and in a short 2.1 miles you have 360 degree views including Copper Mountain, Mt of the Holy Cross, the Gore Range and Vail’s back bowls.

 

NOW is the time to get outside while the sun is shinning and the trails aren’t super packed with tourists!
