Part of the ride from Breckenridge to Avon (and beyond, if you wish) -- this is a great path. Walk it or ride it as far as suits your ability and desires! In summer, the flowers are wonderful!

This is like a single lane road asphalt road that wanders loosely along the creek it is several miles long and gentle enough in grade that it is not a strain.

Vail is the summer. Be sure to take some time to get out and walk around. It is spectacular. The weather and the views were spectacular.

We rented bikes in Vail and rode this path. It was so scenic, and had very many photo ops! We did about a 12 mile round trip ride. It takes you through some neighborhoods, by the golf course, over and by streams. We even saw some wildlife. This was great fun!

Quiet, beautiful, great change from the busy shopping and restaurants in Vail Village. Liked the constant sound of the water and the wind.

The trail is well kept and meanders along the Gore River. There are many areas on the trail where you can get off the trail and sit by the River. It is a multiuse path and is well utilized.

While we stayed in Vail Village, we took full advantage of the Vail Path along Gore Creek. It connects several "communities" in and around Vail, making it easy to get to tons of hotels/condos, restaurants, bars, shops and attractions. We were on the path multiple times a day. Good for walking, running and biking - beautiful scenery!

Every time we visit Vail, we make it a point to walk or bike at least part of this beautiful trail. It's a refreshing respite from every day's concerns. We've always found it safe, spotlessly clean, and surrounded by interesting architecture and sculpture, as well as amazing plantings. Very nice, Vail. Very nice, indeed!

Because our timeshare was 3.3 miles from the main village, we had a lot of time to walk the path between them, mostly along the Eagle River. Path is shared with bikers, not all of whom let you know they're about to whoosh by you.
