Town of Minturn
Just two miles south of I-70, and only 10 minutes from Vail, Minturn was originally developed as railroad town in the late 1800s. Today, Minturn’s quaint galleries and antique shops offer a peek at the past while the town bustles with contemporary business activity and attractions.
One of the most popular events in the community is the Minturn Farmer’s Market, which runs weekly during the summer and annually hosts more than 5,000 visitors.
Elevation: 7,860 feet
Claim to Fame: There are numerous hiking and mountain biking trails into the Holy Cross Wilderness Area and White River National Forest. Colorado 24, running through town is also a designated Colorado Scenic Byway, offering stunning views along the way.
