We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: If you’re looking for things to do in Minturn, your best bet is to get outside. Whether you’re visiting in the winter, summer or a season in between, daytime Minturn events tend to revolve around the great outdoors. Thanks to its location between the White River National Forest and the Holy Cross Wilderness combined with its proximity to the Eagle River, Minturn promises an outdoor playground for athletes and adventure enthusiasts of all stripes.
In the winter, hit the slopes at nearby Vail or Beaver Creek, enjoy backcountry skiing in the White River National Forest or go snowshoeing or cross-country skiing on groomed trails in Minturn’s Maloit Park.
In the summer, take advantage of personal or guided fly fishing trips along the Eagle River, sample great food at the Minturn Market, take the whole family to the playground or a theater production at Little Beach Park and Amphitheater, rekindle nostalgia for a bygone era at the drive-in movie theater, spend a day (or several) hiking the scenic trails throughout the White River National Forest and the Holy Cross Wilderness or unwind at an outdoor yoga class.
