Fall in Steamboat Springs is a movable feast for the eyes. The great Colorado Aspen trees never disappoint. Saying goodbye to summer greens is never too difficult when what replaces them are miraculous shades of copper, gold and bronze. Along each trail and above every ridge-line you will discover a confetti of fallen foliage, mother nature’s gift that guides locals and tourists alike along winding paths, covering every inch of our valley.
When I left the hustle bustle of the east coast for Steamboat, I knew that my new home was remarkable in many ways. Decades later, I am still in awe every October when the leaves metamorphose into multidimensional masterpieces. If you are looking for a few last hue soaked hurrahs before the squeals of Winter begin, consider hiking Spring Creek Trail or Fish Creek Falls with your camera. If biking is more your style, hit Emerald Mountain and take full advantage of trails when they are dry. Thanks to our Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund, biking in Steamboat Springs is easier than ever.
This year Old Man Winter is not patiently waiting his turn. The Yampa Valley has been blasted with more than a few snowflakes prior to Halloween. The white dusting of snow that is sitting atop Mt. Werner only serves to highlight the vibrant Aspen leaves hanging on for a few more weeks. Every day is full of opportunity to seek beauty where you live, but when you live in Steamboat Springs, beauty has a way of seeking you.
