Rio Grande Trail, Colorado, USA
My morning routine in Aspen always starts with a run along the Rio Grande Trail. The trail is easily accessed from downtown and stretches 41 miles between Aspen and Glenwood Springs with an elevation change of 2,120 feet. It used to be an old...

Rim Trail S, Aspen, CO 81611, USA
A fun hike or mountain bike trail is the Rim Trail. Even though there are two places to hop on the trail, I personally recommend starting at the side near the Snowmass Mall off Divide Road. The trail is a series of tame switchbacks that traverses...

Crested Butte, CO 81224, USA
One of the most beautiful hikes I've experienced is the one from Aspen to Crested Butte, Colorado. The hike, which takes you from the Aspen side over the West Maroon Pass into Crested Butte, will take you about 6 hours, is 13 miles and about 1,500...

Maroon-Snowmass Trail, Aspen, CO 81611, USA
Aspen is a playground for the active traveler. No matter how many times I visit, I always set aside time to bike to Maroon Bells. Rent a bike from the Hub, a cycling store in town, and be sure to bring a water bottle and even some snacks for...
Save Place
Piney Lake, Colorado, USA
The Upper Piney trail is about a 12-mile roundtrip hike through aspen and evergreen trees. You can cut it in half by turning around at the picturesque waterfall about 3 miles in. Beyond the falls the trail gets steeper the closer you get to Upper...

Collegiate Peaks, Colorado 81211, USA
A drive from Buena Vista through the ghost town of Winfield leads into the valley of the Collegiates. Wildflowers adorn the windswept summit of Mount Harvard, the fourth highest mountain in the contiguous United States (14,421 ft). At the top,...

The Continental Divide spans North America, going through Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico and down into Mexico. Along this expanse are some of the most gorgeous hiking trails, and while there isn't one defined place for a point of...
Save Place
Willow Lake, Colorado 81611, USA
Most people that backpack in the Maroon Bells Wilderness Area usually either go over West Maroon Pass to Crested Butte or go over Buckskin Pass and camp at Snowmass Lake. A lesser known lake is Willow Lake. With fewer visitors, this is a secluded...
Save Place
Alma, CO, USA
Climbing the Colorado 14ers (14,000 foot or higher peak) is a rewarding summer and early fall activity. Set out early Saturday morning, bring water, snacks, layers, and a camera. Mount Democrat is a 4-mile round trip with over 2,000 feet of...

Avon, CO, USA
Rock climbing. Ice climbing. Desert camping. Backcountry skiing. Pretty much anything you dream up Apex Mountain School can put together. They operate throughout the Rockies and into southern Utah.
Save Place
King Lake, Colorado 80466, USA
I was hiking the King Lake Trail, in the Indian Peaks Wilderness, doing a 48-hour solo loop backpacking trip. It was late August. The wildflowers were going crazy, but up here just beneath the Continental Divide, there was still plenty of snow and...

Beautiful park outside Boulder, CO.

Baseline Rd & 9th St, Boulder, CO 80302, USA
If you visit Boulder, hiking is a central part of the experience. There are many trails that criss-cross Chautauqua Park, but if you hike the ones under NIST you will find them to be much less crowded. Take the Table Mesa exit off the 36 Highway...

Denver's Lower Highlands neighborhood has seen some major development in the past five years. A mix of century-old cottages and modern designs, LoHi—as the locals call it—is sandwiched between downtown and the Rocky Mountains. It's one of the...
