East Vail/Vail Golf Course
The quiet and intimate residential community of East Vail is nestled at the bottom of Vail Pass just a few miles east of Vail Village. Residents of East Vail enjoy a unique feel of small town seclusion, yet its free bus system and a beautiful paved recreation path easily link the strictly residential community to Vail Village. East Vail is a favorite with longtime locals and second-homeowners from the Front Range.
The popular recreation path winds from East Vail to West Vail and is an ideal spot for a walk, jog or bike ride. The path meanders along peaceful Gore Creek, a mountain stream perfect for fly fishing or cooling off. Along the way, the beaver ponds are a terrific location for an afternoon or evening picnic. Keep an eye out – the beavers are often hard at work maintaining their home. East Vail is also the staging point for many of Vail’s most popular hiking trails. Home to the trailheads for the Pitkin Creek, Deluge Lake, Gore Creek, Bighorn and Booth Falls trails, East Vail is considered the gateway to the Gore Range.
East Vail is also a favorite neighborhood for families with children. Home to the Vail Mountain School, a K-12 private school set in a serene mountain setting, the area has very little traffic and plenty of open space for children to play and explore.
Also linking East Vail to Vail Village is the 18-hole Vail Golf Course. Homes dot the landscape of this public play, par-72 golf course, and the area remains a popular family neighborhood. The Vail Golf Club includes Seasons at the Green Restaurant and Bar. With spectacular views of the Gore Range and a wonderful outdoor patio, Seasons at the Green is a popular choice for weddings, corporate events and group dinners.
During the winter months, East Vail is a short, free bus ride from the slopes of Vail Mountain, and the Vail Golf Course is transformed into a Nordic Skiing Center with groomed trails spanning the length of the snow-covered course.
