Things to Do this Fall

Fall is in full swing in Winter Park, Colorado Unfiltered. 

Here’s just a taste of what’s in store for your fall trip.

Mountain Biking

Winter Park offers a vast number and variety of trails in the area. Tackle the steady climbs through beautiful meadows, and you'll be rewarded with views of golden aspens, the quintessential Colorado foliage. Check out all of the trail options on an interactive trail map. If you need a tune up or want new gear, there are lots of local bike shops to visit.


The same trails you use for biking are also available for hiking. Jones Pass is a 6.5 mile trek that crests the Continental Divide above the tree line, earning hikers an up-close-and-personal look at Mother Nature’s fall colors. James Peak Protection Area encompasses 14,000 acres of stunning peaks and lovely lakes. Lucky hikers might even encounter wildlife like elk, deer, bighorn sheep or mountain goat along the way.

Horseback Riding

Are you interested in hoofing it – literally – through Winter Park’s trail system? Then you should try horseback riding. There are many companies throughout Winter Park and the Fraser Valley that can expertly guide even the most novice city slicker through the Colorado backcountry on horseback. 

Camping & Glamping

Sometimes a day trip just doesn’t cut it, and in that case, staying overnight in the Colorado mountains might be just the ticket. There are plenty of campsites and RV parks around Winter Park. The Broome Hut, located near the timberline on the west side of Berthoud Pass, is part of the Grand Hut system, which is owned and operated by the Grand Huts Association

If roughing it isn't for you, there are plenty of hotels, motels, and lodging options and deals for you.
