A Weekend Trip to Steamboat Springs

Steamboat Springs is one of Colorado’s hidden gems; many Front Range residents just don’t make the trek out to the northwest corner of the state. This charming mountain town has plenty to offer visitors all year long. For a weekend full of outdoor activities and small-town charm, pack the car for a road trip to Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

Hike the Backcountry Trails

Since this Western Slope town takes a bit more time to get to than other Rocky Mountain outposts, the hiking trails are less crowded. Front Range residents in Boulder will experience a whole new view of the mountains, minus the people. Immerse yourself in evergreen trees while you walk along soft forest paths.

Fly Fish with an Experienced Outfitter

Book an afternoon fishing excursion with one of Steamboat’s numerous fly-fishing outfitters. Wade into the chilly Yampa and cast your rod to catch a beautiful brown or rainbow trout. No fishing experience? A guided outfit will teach you everything you need to know about this peaceful sport. Plus, fly-fishing is something you can do year-round throughout Colorado. You may just come home with a new hobby.

Strawberry Park Hot Springs

No trip to Steamboat is complete without a dunk in Strawberry Park Hot Springs. Reserve a spot and make the short drive to these secluded natural baths in the middle of the forest. With different pools at varying temperatures, you can test the waters and find a spot that works best for you. Go in the evening to star-gaze from the warm, mineral water.

Horseback Ride through the Mountains

Channel your inner cowboy or cowgirl with a horseback ride through rocky trails and over ridgelines. Steamboat is home to many horseback riding guide companies with rave reviews. There’s no better way to experience the mountains than from the saddle of a horse. Regardless of your riding experience, these outfitters are at the ready with well-trained horses and knowledgeable guides to help you feel confident in the saddle and on the trail.

World Class Dining

If city amenities are your thing, Steamboat has plenty to offer. Stroll through the downtown and pop into numerous charming shops that boast outdoor gear and artisan wears. Reserve a table at one of Steamboat’s top-rated restaurants for a lovely dining experience. If you’re looking to fuel up before a long hike or snowshoe, stop by one of these awesome breakfast joints for steak and eggs, a Denver omelet, or pile of flapjacks with fresh fruit.
