So Much to Do in the Rockies
For lovers of the outdoors, the Rocky Mountains are truly a kind of paradise.

Mountain bikers will relish the well-maintained trails they’ll find at Howelsen Hill and Steamboat Resort; there are many places to rent bicycles in Steamboat Springs. If you like to keep clean, but still want to see some beautiful sights, there are so many gorgeous spots you can drive to and have a picnic!
Specialty tours and activities abound in the Colorado Rockies. If you’ve ever wanted to fly high in a hot-air balloon, now’s your chance! How about whizzing above the ground on a zip line? This is a perfect opportunity. How about learning to fish, and catching up your own dinner? Colorado’s numerous mountain streams offer beginners and expert anglers alike the chance to try their hand. Book a tour with an expert fishing guide, and they’ll set you up with everything you need to get started!
If you love horses, you’re definitely in the right place: Colorado has a classic Western vibe, along with lots of places where you can saddle up. Saddleback Ranch, just west of Steamboat Springs, is an excellent spot to get your horseback riding fix. Choose from two-hour photo opportunity tours, four-hour cattle drive experience tours, or afternoon horseback or wagon ride dinner tours. You can also ride ATVs here!
Explore the Water
As soon as you arrive in Steamboat Springs, you’ll notice the beautiful Yampa River winding through town, and you’ll be in the mood to see more of it! Start your river explorations by getting the lay of the land: either bike or walk the length of the Yampa River Core Trail, a lovely 7-mile path for non-motorized vehicles that winds through the center of Steamboat Springs. Along the way, you’ll pass many parks, playgrounds, and perfect picnic spots, as well as the Yampa River Botanic Garden, Howelsen Hill, and the Bear River Skateboard Park. It’s so easy to stop for a quick bite to eat at one of the many great spots nearby, and even to pop in for a brew (or two) at one of the town’s fine craft breweries.
Once you’re ready to get closer to the river, why not start at Mountain Sports Kayak School? A prime destination for all things river-related, Mountain Sports is perfect whether you’re an expert who just needs to rent kayaks or paddleboards, or a complete newbie who needs a “Never Ever” lesson. Their knowledgeable staff will help you select the right equipment, load up your car for you, and direct you to the best spots for your on-river adventures.
Soak in Some Hot Springs
No trip to Colorado would be complete without a visit to at least one hot spring, no matter the season. The waters in Steamboat Springs are popular for a number of reasons, first of all their easy accessibility. If you prefer a natural setting, visit Strawberry Park Hot Springs, where rock pools and forest surroundings combine to offer you the ultimate in relaxation. They also offer massage and watsu (water shiatsu) treatments, but don’t forget to book in advance!
For the ultimate in convenience, as well as abundant offerings, check out Old Town Hot Springs, right in the center of Steamboat Springs. This incredible fitness center offers eight pools of varying temperatures, all fed by the local spring waters. You can also take a multitude of workout classes here, as well as test your strength on the climbing wall, try a floating obstacle course, and fly down their two water slides. As an added bonus, they even have on-site child care!
