It probably comes as no surprise that many of the most popular activities in Edwards, CO, revolve around the great outdoors. Given that Edwards is located in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, just down the road from two of the country’s most popular ski resorts (Vail and Beaver Creek) and right alongside the Eagle River, it would be a shame if the focus of this setting were anything but outdoor recreation. So if outdoor pursuits are what you’re after, Edwards, CO, activities will most certainly deliver.
In the summer, popular Edwards activities include playing golf on pristine courses at Cordillera and Arrowhead, hiking trails throughout the Sawatch Mountain Range and in and around Cordillera, horseback riding on forest trails, fly fishing, rafting or kayaking on the Eagle River and running, walking or cycling on Edwards’ abundance of pedestrian paths.
In the winter, the Vail Valley is all about skiing and snowboarding – and Edwards is no exception. Whether you’re cross-country skiing or snowshoeing at the Cordillera Nordic Center, which features 11 kilometers of groomed track, or bombing down slopes at nearby Vail or Beaver Creek resorts, you’ll find no shortage of opportunities for having fun in the snow.
