It is no exaggeration to say we have it all in Silverthorne. From golfing to a skate park, a thriving Recreation Center, and extensive bird watching, hunting and horseback riding, motorbiking and ATVs, we can't imagine anyone running out of things to do.
The Raven Golf Club at Three Peaks is among the best mountain courses in Colorado. The challenging course was designed by Tom Lehman and Hurdzan/Fry and features lush rolling fairways and immaculate greens set amidst pine and aspen forests and snow-capped peaks.
Located next to the Silverthorne Recreation Center, the Silverthorne Skatepark is a free outdoor park with a 5-foot deep bowl, bulkhead, rails, walls, a pyramid and several other surfaces to practice tricks. The Silverthorne Recreation Center offers beginner and intermediate skate camps throughout the summer.
A vibrant community hub, the Silverthorne Recreation Center offers a range of workout classes, weight room, and an inimitable aquatics center that features a 25-yard lap pool, a 10-foot deep pool, a kiddie pool with imaginative slides and toys, a large water slide and new climbing wall, great for kids of all ages, and an indoor hot tub and sauna.
Stalking big game in the wilderness around Silverthorne is an age-old activity, often passed down from generation to generation. DIY hunters should check specific details on permits, seasons, and hunting requirements, with Colorado Parks and Wildlife. If you prefer to outsource the planning, Gore Range Outfitters takes aspiring hunters to the nearby high country in search of deer, elk, moose, mountain goats, and bighorn sheep.
Motor Biking and ATV
For those who prefer to see nature from behind handlebars, there are plenty of motor biking and ATV trails around Silverthorne. The nearby Golden Horseshoe Trail System offers about 6,000 acres of mountain trails. A mix of 4X4 roads and single track, the system is rugged and wild with two staging areas: Tiger Road and French Gulch.
From the banks of the Blue River in downtown Silverthorne, bird watchers might glimpse a wide range of common birds, including osprey, great horned owl, red-winged blackbird, bald eagle, downy woodpecker, and more.
