Vail has countless hiking trails the range from one mile loops, great for families with young kids, to multi day backpacking trails for those looking for something a bit more challenging.(Hint: Breckenridge has great hiking too!)
3. Fishing: The best part about fishing in Colorado is you can fish all year round, but there is something extra special about fishing in the fall season. For one thing popular fishing spots in the surrounding area are likely to be much less crowded which means more fish for you!
