Hiking in Colorado

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!!!
