"Hill climbers will enjoy this steady grunt to the line shack on Meadow Mountain, an old ski area and lettuce farm near Minturn. This conveniently located hike, starting from a trailhead right on US 24 near its intersection with I-70, makes for a satisfying mountain trudge, if you’re into that sort of thing. After the initial steep, rugged pitch that rises from the dirt parking area, the incline settles down considerably as you join an old road snaking its way up Meadow Mountain." Read more

"Wander up the trail on the aptly named Meadow Mountain through green meadows and cool aspen forests to a line shack on a wide ridge just south of Eagle-Vail. The meadows harbor the remains of the Nelson ranch buildings, great views of the Gore Range, tall grasses, and wildflowers. Enjoy your lunch on the line shack’s shady porch. The easy runs at the Beaver Creek Ski Area lie to the southwest, while ski trails on Vail’s Game Creek Bowl can be seen to the east. From lettuce farm and ranch to ski area, Meadow Mountain offers an interesting and beautiful hike." Read more
