One thing Colorado is known for is hiking. There are 53 fourteeners in Colorado (even though there’s still some debate about the actual number). To be considered a 14er, the peak of a mountain must have an elevation of at least 14,000 feet! Check out the list http://www.hikingintherockies.com/fourteeners/14ers.htm
There are also great hikes for those of us that don’t want to go big (confession, I’m a Colorado native and have never climbed a 14er 😄). This list says these are good 14ers for beginners https://www.coloradoan.com/story/sports/outdoors/2014/06/27/top-beginner-fourteeners/11474973/
Here’s a list of hikes by difficulty https://dayhikesneardenver.com/hikes-by-difficulty/
Best advice-go early, have plenty of water, don’t forget the sunscreen and always take pictures!!!
