Looking for a way to calm your mind and reset from the holiday season? Opt for a hike through the beautiful Colorado scenery. Our state offers an incredible selection of hiking trails, from easy nature walks to some of the most challenging terrain in the country. If you’d like to enjoy the great outdoors without traveling far from home, consider the options we share here–they’re all just 30 minutes or less from Denver.
Bluffs Loop Trail at Bluffs Regional Park
If you’re not feeling up for a strenuous hike, stop by Bluffs Loop Trail at Bluffs Regional Park. This 2.7-mile loop is located in Lone Tree, Colorado, just minutes from the Denver Tech Center. At Bluffs Loop Trail, you’ll have the opportunity to meander along the clearly marked path and follow the spurs to scenic overlooks. This trail is classified as easy, but it does get steep in some areas, so be sure to hike with caution.
Red Rocks Trail
When you’re on the search for gorgeous scenery and an easy to moderate level of hiking difficulty, Red Rocks Trail fits the bill. The drive takes approximately 25 minutes if you’re coming from Denver, and the rugged red rocks are well worth the trip and provide plenty of excellent photo ops. In addition to the hiking trails among the meadows, you’ll also find an incredible red rock tunnel carved into the sandstone. The hike distance is six miles from start to finish, making it a great option for those who are looking for a more rigorous experience.
Panorama Point in Corwina Park offers breathtaking views of Colorado’s natural beauty. This moderate difficulty trail is one of the most peaceful hikes in the state, and much of its 2.4-mile distance is flanked by a gentle babbling brook. When you reach the top of the trail, you’ll be rewarded with incredible views of the mountain ranges and plains. Panorama Point is pet-friendly, but be sure to keep your pets on a leash during your visit.
