Take a Scenic Hike

See some great sites, get your steps in, and breathe the fresh mountain air. Take a Hike?

Sunny Mountain Trail

 

Hiking is a popular pastime in Colorado, and the gorgeous scenery might be why. Summit one of the many peaks for a 360 degree view, or find abandoned mining equipment and ghosts of the past. Grab a  permit to collect mushrooms, or check out the plentiful wildflowers.

There are a ton of different hikes around the county for every skill level. The AllTrails Project website and app are great tools for anyone hiking in the area. You get trail maps and difficulty ratings, an recent reviews on the condition of the trail you want to hike. This is a great resource for making sure trails are clear and dry before tackling them.
