Minturn Activities in Summer

The Vail Valley, including Minturn, is renowned for the opportunities it provides visitors and locals alike to participate in exciting winter activities such as skiing, snowshoeing and snowboarding. But even as the snow melts and the weather gets warmer, Minturn activities and those in the surrounding areas promise a slew of exciting summer fun.

For starters, there’s the Eagle River, which is just steps from downtown Minturn and serves as one of the most popular fly fishing destinations in the state of Colorado. There’s even a fly fishing outfitter in downtown Minturn so you can meet all your fishing needs without ever leaving town. Even if fishing isn’t your thing, you can enjoy plenty of other warm weather Minturn activities. Both the Holy Cross Wilderness and the White River National Forest border the town of Minturn, and each of these destinations boasts some of the best opportunities for hiking, mountain biking and camping in the country. The Sawatch and Gore ranges are home to several 14ers, so many outdoor enthusiasts descend on the area in the summer in the hopes of bagging some peaks.

Enjoy Plenty of Excitement with Summer Minturn Activities

If you’re not fond of wandering in the wilderness, you can enjoy other summer Minturn activities such as road biking or attending any of the town’s numerous community events, which include the popular Minturn Market, a drive-in movie theater and local yoga and theater series. There’s also a massive town rummage sale that’s held every August. There you’ll find everything from home goods to skis to radios to backpacks to ... you name it, the rummage sale probably has it! And of course, you can always take advantage of Minturn’s restaurants and shopping opportunities. In short? You will never be bored by summer Minturn’s activities.
