Hiking by far is the most popular summer activity in the Vail Valley. From a path along the Eagle River to summits of 12-14,000 feet, there are trails for all ages and levels of ability.



There are few places in the world where the game of golf can be played in such astounding natural beauty. Best yet, golfing at altitude means you're a drive away from one of the longest drives you'll ever hit. Public courses can be found in Vail, Eagle-Vail, Avon and Eagle.
