Celebrate the mountains and all the outdoor fun they provide at 14er Fest in Buena Vista, September 29th through October 1st. No, you won’t be required to hike a fourteener—though you could. Buena Vista is in a region with the highest concentration of fourteeners in all of Colorado. But you will be asked to have a great time on the trails and along the river while reveling in everything our incredible mountains offer.

Centrally-located in a high mountain valley, surrounded by multiple mountain ranges, and set alongside the Gold Medal Arkansas River, Buena Vista is an outdoor paradise. And as the town’s popularity has grown, so too have its trail systems.

14er Fest unites all types of trail users—off-roaders, mountain bikers, hikers, anglers—for three days of activities, live music, camping, and libations.

Group hikes and rides start directly from town at the base of the Midland Trail System or a short distance away in the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness Area or Fourmile Recreation Area. Scheduled clinics show participants how to improve performance, demos offer a chance to try new equipment, and races offer friendly competition.

With 40 trails for off-road day trips, 200 miles of singletrack, and 20,000 acres of wilderness to explore, Buena Vista is the ultimate location to honor our amazing mountains and to remind us how lucky we are to call Colorado home.
