Though best known for winter sports, Vail and its neighboring
communities are popular destinations for year-round outdoor recreation.
National Geographic’s Trails Illustrated map of Vail, Frisco, and Dillon

Rockies. Created in partnership with local land management agencies,
this expertly researched map delivers unmatched detail and helpful

This map can guide you off
the beaten path and back again with miles of mapped trails including

Pass/Tenmile Canyon and Two Elk national recreation trails. The clearly
marked trails include mileages between intersections. Trail use is easy
to identify, whether you’re hiking, biking, snowmobiling, or
cross-country skiing. Road types are differentiated as well, so you know
if the route you choose is a four-wheel-drive or high-clearance road.
