Hiking around Steamboat
Going out west is always a fun vacation! Here are some hiking highlights.. These are some great places to hike with beautiful views.. hiking Hahn’s Peak, hiking Pearl Lake and hiking Fish Creek Falls. Hahn’s Peak is very hard..straight up with lots of switch backs but worth it! ( I didn’t make it to very top) The elevation goes from 8200 to 10800. I could hardly breathe! We hiked around Pearl Lake and to Fish Creek Falls. They are both about 1 mile round trip and relatively flat..
Favorite places to eat
Our favorite restaurants in Steamboat.. Creekside Cafe for brunch or lunch. Try to get a table outside by the creek. Ore House is a great steak house. Salt and Lime is delicious Tex mex . If the weather is nice get a table on the roof. Winonas is delicious for breakfast or lunch. The downtown Farmers Mkt is 3-4 blocks long along the river on Yampa street. It’s on Saturdays 8-2 I think, Highly recommend! Hahns Peak Roadhouse is just like it sounds! Fun local pool hall/restaurant. On The way to Hahn’s peak on CR 129 you pass by Clark Colorado where The Home ranch is and The Clark store. The Clark store is definitely a must stop. We flew into Eagle CO and drove to Edwards, CO for lunch. We loved Hovis and Harrison which is a cafe, bakery and market!
The Steamboat rodeo is a very American family activity. The cowgirl going slow around the arena with the American flag is the most patriotic thing! 🇺🇸 Below is a video! There is saddle bronc riding, cowgirl barrel racing, bull riding, tie-down roping, steer wrestling,bareback riding and junior and pee wee events. The announcer explains every event. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. My son is interested in the team roping.
Horseback Riding on the Continental Divide 🤠🐎
VRBO information We stayed in a VRBO on the side of town where my son lives. It’s a brand new neighborhood with brand new houses and we loved it!
