Vail, the largest ski mountain in Colorado, is a very popular mountain town located approximately 2 hours from Denver. The ski mountain is known for its hotels, dining, and events. While I’m not part of the winter ski attractions, I find Vail and the surrounding area to be an excellent place for fall hiking. Below is a limited list of falls hikes near Vail. Directions to each hike can be found on AllTrails.com.HAPPY HIKING!
