Take a hike. Or a bike.

Hiking and mountain biking top the list of summer activities in Vail. Two year-round gondolas deposit you at the top of the mountain for 360-degree views along rolling single track. Drive to Eagles Nest or Holy Cross wilderness areas for more hard-core trekking. And for road bikers and cruisers, hit the Vail Bike Path which passes behind Altus meandering West beyond Edwards or East all the way to Frisco over Vail Pass.
