Rendezvous is trailside living at its best. Miles and miles of trails flow throughout the Rendezvous community and tie in to Arapaho National Forest trails, and the Grand County trail system. The trails are vast and diverse, truly offering something for everyone. You can take a nature hike, or go for a wild downhill mountain bike ride. Many trails are easy enough for families with kids of all ages to experience together. Trails will take you to remote mountain meadows where you’ll be able to view our resident moose and elk. If adventure is in your blood, take the trails to the top of the Arrow property and ski down our own private back bowl! And we’re now grooming our trails in the winter months so you can cross country ski or skate.

- Or cast a line in our stocked Mary’s Pond or the nearby Fraser River, then roast some s’mores around our community fire pit and savor the starry skies
- And when the snow flies, you can’t beat Rendezvous for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, sledding, and tubing on our groomed trails and hills – suitable for any skill level
- Also, check out the Rendezvous Wellness Program below. Use the Rendezvous trails to improve your health and fitness at any time of year. “Working out” has never been such fun!

And be sure to ask about the Gnome Homes charming little homes that will surprise and please you as you explore our trails. Some believe they’ve seen the gnomes peeking from behind rocks and trees, but so far, no one has ever captured them in a picture. Maybe you’ll be the first.

Be Careful on The Trail
Ensure a safe and enjoyable Rendezvous hike or bike by observing a few simple precautions.
Hike or bike with a group or companion. Dress in layers. Wear a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Wear comfortable hiking boots rather than running shoes or sandals.
Drink plenty of water. Let others know where you’ll be hiking and what time you estimate getting back, and check-in with them when you’re done.
Afternoon thunderstorms are a frequent summer occurrence along the mountains. In order to avoid lightning strikes, don’t be the tallest object around or stand under tall objects. Move to higher ground in the event of a flash flood. Rain gear can help prevent hypothermia, a drop in body temperature that can happen even in the summertime.
As people move into wildlife habitat, animal encounters occur more frequently. Click here to learn more about how to deal with wildlife on the trail.
Ticks and Mosquitoes
Wear long-sleeved shirts and pants, and apply bug repellent with DEET (or a natural alternative) to clothing.
Poison Ivy“Leaves of three, let it be.” Wash the area thoroughly if you brush against poison ivy, poison oak or poison sumac.
