The cool breezes, stunning vistas and glowing colors make fall in Steamboat a magical time to enjoy all your favorite activities.
The Steamboat Chamber Resort Association staff shares a few of our secrets to soaking up fall in Steamboat Springs.
Mountain biking is at its best in the fall. The cool air and changing leaves around town mean a chance to take in the scenic vistas all while enjoying a high-energy adventure on world-class trails.
A fun, challenging loop from the Mad Creek trailhead takes you up to the historic Mad Barn, winds through a thick grove of aspens, and ends with a moderately technical descent on the startlingly beautiful Red Dirt Trail. View more on our biking trails.
Savoring every last drop of fall, I love to get out on the golf course as often as possible before winter arrives. The ranch-like setting of Haymaker Golf Course offers stunning views and a challenging links-style course and Rollingstone Ranch Golf Club is a gem with golden-leaf aspen trees lining many holes.

I love to get the most out of the beautiful fall days by enjoying even my meals outdoors. Steamboat is filled with patios and decks that offer a relaxing atmosphere for drinks, apps, or a hearty, comforting meal.

The Strawberry Park Hot Springs are a must-see any time of year, but there’s nothing quite like a soak in the fall, nestled among a golden aspen grove in the late afternoon hours.
It’s one of the most spectacular spots in the world to catch a sunset or a moonrise, and is the perfect date-night destination. View more information on our hot springs.

Fall is a photographer’s dream. The best way to capture Steamboat’s golden season is to take a scenic drive up Buffalo Pass – 4-wheel drive or high clearance recommended – to the quiet, remote aspen groves eight miles up at the Continental Divide.
