Hiking with the kids - ages 4 & 7

best hikes in colorado

People always ask me where they should go hiking. ALWAYS.  These are some of my absolute favorite hikes that are either unmatched in scenery, offer a lot of "bang for your buck," or are so close to home that I keep going back.

  • Roxborough State Park is great!

  • The Crags, near Mueller State Park, is a fun hike for the whole family

  • Mayflower Gulch is a great snowshoe and summer hike with cabin ruins near Copper Mtn

  • Hanging Lake near Glenwood is steep, but worth it!  Check for status and permits.

  • In RMNP? Take a stroll around Sprague Lake (great for visiting flatlanders!)

  • Also in RMNP, hikes to Bierstadt Lake and Dream Lake are fun with kids

  • Three sisters/Brother overlook in Alderfer near Evergreen

  • Waterton Canyon (go as far you as like then turn around!  Also bike friendly)

  • Maxwell Falls is great summer or winter, but crowded - Evergreen

  • Mitchell Creek Canyon - Castle Rock

  • Rim Rock to Creek Bottom in Castlewood Canyon State Park 

  • Ranch View & Sandstone Meadow - Larkspur Meadow Open Space

  • Shrine Ridge Trail - Vail Pass

  • Silver Dollar/Murray Lakes - Georgetown
