One-Day Summer Itinerary


With just one day to experience Colorado Unfiltered, it can be hard to decide what to do. We've put together an epic summer itinerary with our favorite activities so you can make the most out of your Rocky Mountain adventure. 


Make your way to Winter Park bright and early to maximize your time in the mountains. There's something to do for every adventure style whether you're on a solo trip or out with the family. Here are some great options to start your morning: 

Get your adrenaline pumping! Head to Trestle Bike Park for some downhill thrills for every skill level. Bike rentals are available on site or at other local equipment rental shops. For a more family-friendly option, take a leisurely ride through town and take in the charming shops and beautiful scenery. 


There's nothing quite like hiking in the Rocky Mountains. Choose from our favorite day hikes near Winter Park, or hikes that will challenge you to reach the top. Get to the trailhead early to avoid the crowds and don't forget to pack the essentials


With miles of rivers and streams, Winter Park and Fraser have great fishing opportunities for the avid angler and beginner alike. Try fishing at some of these spots on the Fraser River. Don't worry about bringing gear, just visit one of Winter Park's rental shops for all your fishing needs. 

Looking for other summer activities? Check out horseback riding, golfing, and rafting in Winter Park. 


After you've ventured out for the morning, head to town for a relaxing lunch paired with some local brews. Choose a place where you can sit out side and enjoy the scenery. Many of our resort and downtown restaurants boast patios with a killer view. 

Pro tip: Sign up for a Winter Park Experience Pass and gain access to deals and discounts as well as the insider's guide to incredible local adventures and experiences. It is free and available on your mobile device. 


To end your day in Winter Park, do something extra special or adventurous to leave a lasting impression.  Take a ride on Colorado’s longest alpine slide at Winter Park Resort, head towards Devil’s Thumb Ranch in Tabernash and strap in for a screaming ride on their outdoor zip line, or enjoy a relaxing massage and soak in the pool at the Spa. Or visit Winter Park Adventure Quest in Fraser for an aerial adventure or guided rock climbing expedition in the National Forest!
