Vail Nature Center

The Vail Nature Center is closed for the 2015/16 winter season.
Please check back in spring 2016 for next summer’s hours!

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. NEW this year you can take the in-town bus to the Nature Center stop on Vail Valley Drive!
