STAY: Camp at one of the White River National Forest campgrounds near Ruedi Reservoir. Chapman is a great area because it’s spread out, but there are other options along the Frying Pan Road on the way up Hagerman Pass. More adventure ideas can be found on pages 64 and 66.
PLAY: Basalt is an outdoor recreation paradise with miles of trails for cycling, hiking, and mountain biking that fit any experience level (page 64). See breathtaking views of Mount Daly and the entire Elk Mountain range on horseback with Snowmass Creek Outfitters. Get in a great post-workout stretch at Vimana Yoga, which offers six different styles of yoga: heated and unheated. Another option is Fit.Fashion.Face, a one-stop shop for Pilates instruction, vintage Lululemon, and facials.
Eat: Stop by Skip’s Farm to Market for fresh, locally grown picnic items (page 32) for the day’s adventures. After a hard workout, amazing margaritas and Mexican food await you at Hacienda Jalisco or locally crafted beers at Capitol Creek Brewery.
