Fall Activities in Colorado

Here we are in late August, temperatures are starting to cool, kids are getting back in school and mountain towns like Breckenridge, Frisco, Copper Mountain, Vail, Winter Park, Grand Lake, Steamboat and Aspen are less crowded. Now is the time to get out and enjoy all the activities the mountains offer.

Take a Jeep or a 4×4 tour thru the backcountry, a photographer’s dream, see wildlife close up and personal or drive up to the continental divide. Want a little more action hop on a ATV and explore the mountains on your own or go on a guided tour with a professional outfitter. Learn about the history of Breckenridge, or Vail or Winter Park with professional guides that know the backcountry.

Seeing the mountains of Colorado by horseback will give you a sense of how it once was. Outfitters in Aspen, Vail, Breckenridge, or Estes Park will guide you through aspen groves, mountain streams, up through Rocky Mountain National park and area’s only accessible by horseback with scenery one only sees in the movies. Do something different by horseback and experience a cattle drive, professional cowboys will show you how and you will have an experience of a lifetime.
