Now that the winter has officially begun and A-Basin ski area has lifts running on Friday, it is only a matter of time until spring comes back around and melts the snow to feed our rivers. Fall is one of the best times to visit Colorado as it offers snowcapped mountain peaks, the beautiful fall aspens, an almost endless number of activities and some of the best weather of the year. My favorite little mountain town to visit for outdoor activity is the Granite/ Buena Vista area as it has the highest concentration of 14er’s in the lower 48 and also offers a never ending list of activities.
Granite and Buena Vista, CO are quaint little mountain towns that offer some of the best hiking, tallest mountains, curious wildlife, world class whitewater rafting and much much more. This is an area where you can fly fish, zipline and go mountain biking or horseback riding all in one day; a true outdoors enthusiasts dream. During the fall, your group will have options for rock climbing, hiking, fishing, horseback riding and camping, giving you the ultimate option for adventure. Regardless if you are the hard core hiker trying to knock out 14ers or a younger family looking for some more easy going adventure, Granite, CO and Buena Vista, CO will have all sorts of different difficulties and options. The highlights of the area include the stunning 14ers of the Sangre De Cristo and Collegiate Ranges as well as the gold medal stretches of the Arkansas River that include Browns Canyon National Monument.
