A 1940s homestead perched between a mountain meadow and the forested bank of Gore Creek houses the Vail Nature Center. This seven-acre facility, in the heart of Vail, is a tranquil gem to explore the web of trails along Gore Creek or come inside to learn from the exhibits and knowledgeable staff. Programs include: hiking, birding tours, beaver pond tours, wildflower viewing, stargazing, and creekside nature tours. All ages, donations accepted. Skip driving and take the in-town bus to the Soccer Fields stop on Vail Valley Drive to visit.
