This bike trail is great. Too it from Vail pass all the way down to Edwards. Then you can take the Eco Bus back to Vail. The path is well paved, the scenery is magnificent. It's a must do especially if you want to do it all down hill.

Great way to see some scenery that friends can do together. We did it on a Sunday morning & we're done before lunch so we stopped by the Sunday Farmers market in Vail Village and could've kept bikes all afternoon. This bike ride is great regardless of the physical shape your in. There's some spots where you will have to... More

We walked between the villages. People were friendly and called out if they were coming. When you passed folks, pleasantries were always exchanged.

The Gore Creek trail runs for miles and is itself a beautiful walk, varying from a meandering paved trail through the town centers, to a nice trail following the golf course, to a long stretch of semi-wilderness with views of beaver dams, interesting aspen forest and local parks and outdoor art.

This path went right by our accommodations at Eagle Point and we walked it almost every day. It is a wonderful path, very well maintained and an easy stroll for every level of fitness.

The Vail pass receration path is suitable for all riding abilities. The scenery is stunning and beautiful. A van shuttle service is taking riders up to the pass and the downhill ride is fun and easy. If you like a good workout and challenge you can ride the path uphill. It is 14 miles from the top of the pass... More

This trail is just beautiful for walking, biking, whatever. We rented bikes and rode for quite a ways and really enjoyed it.

I used this trail to get from my hotel to both Lionshead and the main village. Very nice alternative to taking the car or the bus. Walk was pretty easy and the views were nice.

A nice wide path to walk along the river on the Mountain side of Vail. You can cut into different parts of Vail village along the path.
