The words “Colorado” and “hiking” should be listed as synonyms in every Thesaurus. From aggressive climbs of all fifty three 14,000 foot peaks in the state, to relaxing strolls along the well-maintained paths of state and municipal green spaces, there’s something for every ability and ambition.
City hikes such as the Boulder Creek Greenway Trail in Boulder or Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs make it easy to begin enjoying the local topography. When the needs is for some altitude and distance exotic names such as “Devil’s Thumb Pass,” “Beaver Creek Loop,” and “Sentinel Point” beckon. But “hiking” in Colorado isn’t limited to the kind of treks available to people on foot. Horses, mountain bikes, cross country skis, and snowshoes all add to the ways adventurous travelers can access the beauty of the Colorado Rocky Mountain open spaces. Don’t miss out on any of this. Get a map and get going!
