    On the Hill: Hiking the Minturn Mile

    On the Hill Summer, brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute, brings you a video report about a different High Country adventure every weekday.

    Today's activity: The Minturn Mile, summer edition.

    Conditions: The Minturn Mile sees thousands of skiers making the exciting journey from Vail Mountain to the small town of Minturn every winter, but many of those skiers don't realize it's also a fun route to enjoy in the summer. Open to hikers, bikers and horseback riders, "The Mile," otherwise known as the Game Creek Trail, is looking especially beautiful this year as good precipitation numbers from April until now have kept things lush.
