First of all, if you’re thinking about eloping, then let me just start by stating that you are a BADASS!

There are many gorgeous places to elope in Colorado! Some places you can literally get out of your car and you’re surrounded by beauty, you can take a ski lift to the top of, or if you’re up to it you can hike to the view too! Vail, Estes Park, and Breckenridge are super popular destinations to elope in Colorado. Some locations are more often the beaten path than others. So, whether you’re looking to full for a full on hike to say your wedding vows or you want to pull over on one of the many gorgeous mountain passes we have in Colorado, well-you can’t go wrong!


Hikes: (these are where some of the greatest views will be some are more moderate than others)

  • Berrypicker Trail (can take a gondola to the top)
  • Upper Piney River Falls (one of the best views in Vail)
  • Shrine Ridge Trail (depending on the time of the year there are amazing wildflowers)
  • Vail-Battle Mountain pass (scenic highway with hundreds of secluded accessible spots to elope at)

On another note:

Something great about Colorado is that you can self solemnize, which basically means you don’t need an officiant. You just need you two! You can get the wedding license in Colorado fairly quick and easy, it only costs $30. Signing the marriage license makes it official. Here’s a step by step process!
