One of the most beautiful times in Breckenridge is the fall! With winter coming on strong, all the trees are turning and it is just beautiful everywhere you look here in town. It is not time to hit the slopes yet, but there are still some fun fall activities in Breckenridge. Here is the scoop from Colorado Rafting.
One of the best fall activities to experience this time of year is AVA’s Cliffside Zipline Tours! Find yourself zooming off cliffs and through the trees in beautiful Idaho Springs, Colorado, located just 40 minutes from downtown Breckenridge. The tours are about three hours long and are a wonderful adventure for the whole family!
Rafting season might be over on some Colorado's rivers, but the Upper Colorado River is still alive and well! AVA’s Upper Colorado River Floats are the perfect way to experience the environment from a whole new view. Enjoy the changing leaves and beautiful views as you float gently downstream.
If you are in Breckenridge, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the fall foliage with your vehicle. The town of Breckenridge is home to many high mountain roads that can lead to incredible views. Drive to the top of Boreas Pass for a view of the entire Breckenridge Ski Resort with the whole town underneath. Bring your camera because the view is one you will never want to forget.
Get out on the trails before the snow hits! This is a great time of year to get out on a hike as the air is cool and the trails are less crowded. There are countless trails right out of town and many hikes of all difficulty levels. Go for a leisurely stroll on the Burro Trail off Peak 9 or test your strength on the famed 14 thousand foot Quandary Peak just south of Breck!
After that hike it is surely time to grab a beer! Colorado is home to many great craft breweries with Breckenridge itself being home to both Broken Compass Brewery and the famous Breckenridge Brew Pub. Don’t know which flavor to choose? Don’t! Grab a flight of all flavors and taste them all!
We hope we made it easier in your search for the best fall activities in Breckenridge!
