Hanging Lake Trail

Amazing! By far my favorite trail! It's a quick hike that follows the creek so you can easily go in the morning and still finish before noon. It is somewhat difficult if you're not prepared. The trail has a steady incline so your legs get a work out. It's also a bit rocky at some points. 7 small bridges later, you will see one of the most naturally beautiful places in, my opinion, the country. It may be a little busy, that's why I recommend going early in the morning, but it is so worth it! Crystal clear turquoise water, moss covered waterfalls, and the view is spectacular. I can't wait to go again!

Definitely for those who don't want to take a long or strenuous hike to see the scenery. Super busy tourist attraction.

A little busy and not very challenging. Over all, the scenery was very beautiful.

I wasn't too impressed with the trail we went on. The surrounding area was absolutely gorgeous, though. It was also a little busy, but we also went over the weekend so it's to be expected with most places. I may go again and explore a little more when I have time.

Windy Peak Trail

I hiked this trail awhile back and I loved it. It was an overcast day, which made it even nicer, but there was so much tree coverage it wouldn't be bad on a hot sunny day either. Amazing views the whole way. I will definitely go back again!

Bruin Bluff / Lair of the Bear

I personally, didn't care for this trail. It was nice at first but then we kept having to stop and move over for bicyclists to pass. There were so many bikers, we eventually turned back because our "hike" had turned more into a stop, walk, stop, walk kind of deal. Very disappointing.

I've always loved Red Rocks. Nice, easy and peaceful trail. It can be busy, but if you go during the week it's a little less crowded. It's always nice to stop and climb the amphitheater steps, too!

Green Mountain Trail

I live close to Green Mountain so I've done this trail quite a few times. It's a nice trail if you don't want to go far and want to enjoy the views of Denver. There are multiple trails, all with varying difficulties. It's a very popular trail for not only hikers, but for runners and bicyclists as well. Little to no shade so come prepared.

Very busy trail. Some tree cover at some parts, none at other parts which can make it a difficult hike on hot days if your not prepared. Dog friendly, but again, bring extra water than you think you may need for your furry pal. Views are great and there's always the castle at the top!

Beautiful hike! Wonderful on hot days since it's mostly surrounded by forest. A little rocky at parts so small dogs may have some trouble but not too much. Not too busy either. Very enjoyable.
