Since the entire Rocky Mountain region has thousands of different tree species, it is natural that many of them change color during the fall season. Thankfully, Winter Park has many trails to get up close and personal with a full spectrum of color that falls from the trees. Winter Park is known as the Mountain Bike Capital of the U.S., so don’t forget to rent a bike through one of the many outfitters around town to experience the trails during this special time of year as well. For a bird’s-eye view of the fall colors splashed throughout the tree canopy, take a hot-air balloon ride with Grand Adventure Balloon Tours. This outfitter sails the skies throughout the year, but the best time to see the sights from above is during autumn.
Fall in the Rocky Mountains brings about change in the vegetation color and the prevalence of wildlife. When visiting this region during this period, expect to witness elks bugling their way around the mountainous area. You can enjoy this wildlife spotting by taking a scenic drive to the Grand Lake and Rocky Mountain National Park, where wild animals meander past the valleys and ranges. Alternatively, enjoy a scenic drive through the Corona Pass and soak in the stunning views offered by the magnificent aspen groves. This pass winds past these groves, eventually climbing to over 11,000 feet. Another way of taking in the striking mountainous features is by taking a scenic drive through the County Highway 55 connecting Granby to Hot Sulphur Springs.
Numerous events take place in the area during this period, the notable one being the Mountain Oktoberfest. This event is set in the surrounding Rocky Mountains, giving the apt atmosphere for a session of unlimited beer, multiple games, fantastic food, and great music. Utilize the accommodation spots in the area to ensure you make the most of the night without worrying about anything. In a nutshell, fall in Winter Park guarantees multiple explorable activities, all of which are accessible; all it takes is dedication and a spirit of adventure.
