Enjoy Autumn In All Its Glory This Week in Vail

By Caitlin Row | Tuesday, September 18, 2018

Autumn colors are definitely blossoming, making the Vail Valley a delightful place to be right around now! I suggest getting up here ASAP to enjoy the change of the seasons.

Weather this week is mostly dry and sunny with temperatures topping in the low 70s through the weekend. Check out the 10-day forecast here.

This is a perfect time to get outside on foot or bike and explore Vail Valley's numerous trails. Here are some hiking suggestions, courtesy of the Vail Daily. I personally like Booth Falls Trail in East Vail and EagleVail Trail in (you guessed it) EagleVail.

With that in mind, here are my top picks for Vail Valley This Week.
