Vail Mountain Opens All Hiking and Biking Trails for the Summer

Vail Mountain has announced all of the resort’s hiking and biking trails are available to guests for the summer. This includes the Kinnickinnick and Sunlight hiking trails, which have been closed over the previous years due to construction projects such as The 10th, Gondola One, and the Mountain Top Express Lift (#4). Mountain bikers will be glad to hear that the popular Grand Traverse with its sweeping mountain views has also reopened.

Guests can explore Vails summer trail system either on foot or on wheels with Adventure Ridge’s guided hike and bike tours.
