Minturn is the perfect place for any outdoor recreation fan because it is surrounded by the Holy Cross Wilderness, a national forest, and the Eagle River. There is an outdoor adventure available in every season: hiking, biking, fishing, uphilling, snowshoeing and more! About 35 percent of Minturn is designated wilderness and includes portions of the Holy Cross and Eagles’ Nest Wildernesses. One of the most loved hikes is the Missouri Lakes Trail, which is an amazing hike with stunning scenery with creeks, wildflowers, lakes, and alpine cirques.
Minturn Bike Park is a free bike park for kids and families. It is used by kids and beginners who want to improve their bike riding abilities. The park also includes advanced dirt jumps and technical gravity trail features with rock drops, wood features, bridges, and more.
Little Beach Park is situated between the Minturn cliffs and the Eagle River, which makes it the perfect location to spend time with family, have a picnic or small party since the park has many shade trees, picnic tables, grills, and an easy access to the river for fishing and boating. The park also features a playground for all ages, a climbing wall & rock climbing, and a basketball court. Stop by in the evening and there might even be a local band playing.
