Throughout the year, the town of Winter Park, as well as the eponymous resort, provides myriad activities and events depending on the season. Every June, Trestle, the world-famous downhill mountain biking resort, opens to the delight of everyone who wishes to explore the mountain on two wheels. Winter Park is also a hiker’s paradise. With more than 100 miles of trails throughout the area and with access to the greater Arapahoe and Roosevelt National Forests, there is no shortage of space to stretch the legs. If you are traveling with children, don’t forget to visit Colorado’s largest alpine slide at the top of Winter Park Resort. Here, everyone in the entire family can try their chances at bobsledding down six-hundred vertical feet of track in a specially designed sled.
Another popular summer activity in Winter Park is mountain biking. This mountain town is home to over 250 miles of trails, making it a mecca for mountain bikers of all skill levels. And given the conducive conditions, mountain biking in Winter Park during the summer is an exhilarating experience.
