Feel free to ask the Columbine staff if you have any questions about places to go or things to do during your stay.

Hiking & Mountain Biking

Enjoy easy to challenging hikes in the national forest and state park lands convenient to Columbine. Columbine staff members are happy to offer suggestions.




Cross Country Skiing & Snowshoeing

Ski or snowshoe from your cabin door. If Columbine’s one-mile loop is too tame for you, there are miles of groomed multi use trails easily accessible from Columbine. Or, ski or snowshoe off-trail on national forest land for a more tranquil experience. Steamboat Lake State Park has groomed non-motorized Nordic trails.





There are over 100 miles of groomed snowmobile trails accessible from Columbine. While we do not allow riding of your machines to directly to your cabin, we provide a staging area and convenient trail access. To check on the grooming status of our trails, click here.

If you don’t have your own machines, try renting from Rocky Mountain Rentals located in the Steamboat Lake State Park or the Hahn’s Peak Roadhouse.




Horseback or Dinner/Sleigh Rides & Dog Sledding

For horseback or dinner/sleigh rides, we recommend the Hahn’s Peak Road House.  For dog sled tours around Steamboat Lake or Hahns Peak, we recommend Mountain Paws.


Restaurants near Columbine include the Hahn’s Peak Café, the Hahn’s Peak Roadhouse, and the Clark Store (serving breakfast and lunch).

In Steamboat

Steamboat Springs has a lot going on year round. Especially popular are downhill skiing at the Steamboat Ski Area, special events like winter carnival and the hot air balloon festival, Old Town Hot Springs with modern hot spring-fed pool and water slide, and the Strawberry Park Hot Springs which provides a more natural setting.
