A quiet hike or bike through the whispering aspen leaves offers up the most amazing views of the Colorado’s fall colors. Some of our favorite Vail Valley hikes and biking trails include: Upper North Trail; Arrowhead Ski Area; Davos Trail; Berry Creek; June Creek; Pauly’s Plunge; East or West Lake Creek. Each trail offers a plethora of views up and down the Vail Valley!
If you thought you might want to see the 2013 fall colors, this weekend, October 4th, 5th and 6th will most likely be the peak of the colors and beauty!
