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.

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!

Stay tuned to our blog & news page on www.GatewayLand.com for fun Summer happenings and the latest in our listings!

Local bus service will boost on East Vail, Sandstone and Golf Course lines this Summer in a test that parallels with parking in town.

During daytime routes, the East Vail line will run twice / hour which doubles it’s original schedule that was once just once / hour.  The Sandstone and Golf Course lines will run once / hour, increasing from once every two hours which it was running at.

Vail Town Council wants to make clear that the boost in service is a test for this summer, and not necessarily a change that will be in effect permanently.  The Council is expected to review the increased bus service numbers come August and the final parking numbers near September. The goal is to make sure guests have a place to park; it’s reported that this isn’t meant for the town of Bail to cash in on money gains, it is meant for the businesses to enhance their customers, and to get their customers to create sales tax for the town of Vail.
