Steamboat Springs isn’t a very small mountain town anymore, but it still has a lot of charm. And it is definitely still home to some incredibly mountain adventures. You’ll find the town to be welcoming and the trails to be remote, especially if you’re willing to go for a bit of a drive. If you are looking for the perfect place to get away from the world and discover nature’s beauty, you’ve found it!
While we can’t be everywhere at once we do make an effort to experience all the trails, cafes, shops and other local establishments we include in each Mini-tinie Adventure. This isn’t just because we love exploring. Our real motivation is to provide you with “been there, done that, loved it” recommendations that are sure to make your adventure even more fun.
The mountains that make up the ridges around the Yampa Valley are known for getting “champagne powder” in the winter…and having impressive fields of wildflowers in the summer. The town itself has grown but the downtown area still holds a lot of mountain town charm.
It takes a bit of time to get to Steamboat Springs but once you get there the world slows down. You’ll notice the days passing by slower, which is perfect for any day trip or weekend getaway. The town will draw you in and the trails will keep both your sense of wonder and your feet busy while you explore.
The remote setting of Steamboat Springs and its close proximity to Wyoming, a state that self-proclaims its wild country, makes the area feel like the “Northwoods” in an idyllic way. You may catch a glimpse of cowboys on horseback and you’ll definitely drive by a few “open range” signs while venturing out to explore the trails of the Yampa Valley.
The Mini-tinie Adventures are more than just a list of places to adventure. We include important details such as where dogs are allowed, the best time to visit local cafes and detailed information on where to park, even when the trailhead parking is full. We put in the extra effort, do you can just show up and enjoy the adventure!
