I have only lived in Colorado for a little over a year and a half but within that short period of time I have found many beautiful and local hikes. These Rocky Mountain hikes include a variety of intensities that can suit any fitness level. Whether you are looking for a fun family relaxed hike or a difficult hike to challenge your athleticism, these hikes are all for you to explore and enjoy the local beauty.

The weather in Colorado changes often throughout the day and drops where temperature can feel warm but get cooler as you climb upward into the mountains. I always dress in layers with a pair of comfy women's hiking pants and leggings. Find your hiking gear at a women's trendy outdoor clothing store to dress with comfort and fashion and feel confident on the trails. I hope you get to hike these beautiful trails local to Denver, Colorado and enjoy them as much as I have been!
