Take exit 176 off I-70. Head south toward the ski mountain, into the main Vail roundabout. Exit the roundabout so you are heading east on South Frontage Road. The Vail Parking structure will be a short distance up on the right, where summer parking is FREE.
Alternatively, you can continue on to the Ford Park parking lot, where attendants will collect cash for paid parking.
DIRECTIONS FROM the VAIL PARKING STRUCTURE:
Exit to the east. Walk northeast toward the softball fields until you see the paved walkway into the park on your right. Follow that path straight down to the Amphitheater. Golf carts run frequently between the top of the path and the venue prior to and following shows. You can also take the Gore Creek Trail directly to the venue. See maps below.
DIRECTIONS FROM the ford park parking lot:
Look for the bike path at the southeast end of the tennis courts. Follow this directly downhill to the Amphitheater.
