While the name may only bring to mind snow-based activities and images of hip snowboarders and stylish ski chalets, Winter Park has something to offer year-round! For instance, spring is a wonderful time to visit, as the winter sports crowds will be thinning out and the summer season will not yet be in full swing. With easy access from Denver, mild weather, blooming fields, and plenty to do for everyone in the family, Winter Park is the perfect place for your activities to enjoy in Winter Park!
Hit the Trails
Whether you bring your own bike or rent one locally, you can spend hours on Winter Park’s more than 600 miles of mountain biking trails! In fact, the area has even earned the Mountain Bike Capital USA Title. Paths boast everything from simple, beginner routes to expert level double-black-diamond trails. If hiking is more your speed, there is no shortage of trails for that! For an easy, family friendly trek, check out the Fraser River Trail, or take advantage of lift access to the Roof of the Rockies Fantasy Meadow Loop and enjoy sights from the heights, but without the climb. For a more challenging hike, take on the 7-mile Columbine Lake Trail and feel the burn of the steady incline, but enjoy the rewards at the top when you can sit and overlook the beautiful, large alpine lake.
Play with Furry Friends
Wondering if you should bring Fluffy along on your Winter Park Vacation? With our wide array of pet friendly lodging choices, you might as well! We’re happy to host you and your four-legged friends, and they’ll be happy they didn’t get left behind. While you’re here, take them to the local Granby Bark Park to meet and make new furry friends, or take them along for breakfast at Vertical, where dogs are welcomed on the patio! After a day of exploring together, check out Hideaway Park Brewery to hang out with other dog and beer lovers. Or, for a pup friendly dinner spot with live music included, check out The Peak, The Pub, or Crooked Creek!

No matter what you love to do on your vacation, we know you’ll have a great time doing it in Winter Park.
