Calling All Leaf Peepers!

The leaves are changing and the temperatures are dropping as we head into the fall months here in Keystone. Fall in the Rocky Mountains is absolutely spectacular with perfect hiking weather, scenic drives full of color, and low prices on vacation rentals. Save big when you book with SkyRun this fall!

You really can’t beat hiking in autumn when the temperatures become much more bearable and the changing leaves offer something extra special to the already striking Colorado landscapes. The Aspen is the most prominent color-changing tree in Colorado. Did you know that Aspens grow in clones, meaning that every single tree is connected to the same root system? This means that as you are walking through a forest of Aspens, they are all related and come from the same mother tree. That is why our beautiful Rocky Mountain hiking trails are so potent with up to thousands of Aspen clones which can turn gold, orange, yellow, and even a burnt red during the fall months. With a multitude of trails ranging in all levels of difficulty, you are sure to find the perfect one for you and your family. Plus, with the lower numbers of tourists, the trails will be wide open.

If you’re not feeling up to a hike and would rather take scenic drives to enjoy the foliage, there are a large number of beautiful mountain roads that will take you through gorgeous forests of changing trees. Some of the roads require four-wheel drive but, most are accessible to all vehicles. Montezuma Road is a paved road on the East side of Keystone which is perfect for any vehicle to accomplish a leaf-peeping adventure.

When you stay in Keystone during autumn, even a step outside of your front door will have you in awe. The trees are already a spectacular palette of yellows, oranges, and reds; and it will only get better until our first storm! The first snow fell on October 2nd in 2017, so make sure you get a chance to enjoy the fall before it’s gone! Call us today to book your vacation home for a fall adventure with your family. SkyRun has you in mind and always offers the best rates and service, guaranteed. Take advantage of our current promotion offering 30% off of any booking now through November 1st!
