Living in Colorado has many perks. Great weather, great people, and great hiking close to town. It is one of the only places where you can be walking the city streets and within 20 minutes be hiking some of the best trails in the US. Check out our top picks for hikes only 20 minutes from the hustle and bustle of the city!  

Alderfer Three Sisters

In 1894, the Alderfer family bought property near the heart of Evergreen. Originally a cattle ranch, the family eventually donated the property to Jefferson County to become what it is today. The rock formations are what gave this park its name- three huge formations were named for the sisters and one for the brother. When you are there be sure to check out all of the amazing and diverse landscapes at the park. For those looking for beginner to intermediate trails with great views we recommend checking out the second trailhead. With many trails to choose from at either trail head, you can choose which one is best for you or mix it up and hit a couple! Bonus- there is a ton of great bouldering minutes from the trailhead! 

Elk Meadow

Elk Meadow was once a hunting ground for the Ute, Arapahoe, and Cheyenne tribes. The lodgepole pines were used for tepees and the animals were (and still are) bountiful. Known for its beautiful meadow and breathtaking views this has to be one of our favorites (and only partially because you can see the shop from the top)! There is also a wide variety of trails here and you can avoid the weekend crowds by starting at the Stagecoach lot.

Lair o' The Bear

First occupied by Swedish settlers in 1902- Lair O' the Bear park still has remnant's from the original fireplaces used at the time. All that is left of the house though are the cherry trees near the trailhead.  Not only do you get beautiful hikes with variety- there’s also a great river flowing through with small alcoves for swimming! Whether you're looking to escape the city for a quick hike or an entire day of lounging in the mountains- this is the trail for you! 

Clear Creek Trail in Golden

Golden has it all- great hiking and a fun town to visit. If you want to skip the i70 traffic and stay closer to town definitely check out the Clear Creek trail! During the Gold Rush of 1859 the Creek provided a pathway to the mountains for those looking for gold. Now it provides beautiful scenery and excellent trails for all who visit. There’s also tubing and all kinds of adventures to find in Golden if you are looking to make a day of it!

Chautauqua Park

What was once an educational oasis for those looking to escape the heat of the south- Chautauqua park has a deep history in Boulder. It is also another great trail if you’re looking for options based on ability/time. This is one of the most scenic spots close to Denver. The ability levels can vary based on what you're looking for and hiking through the flatirons provides some of the best views the front range has to offer! Be sure to check out the learning center at the base of the trailhead to learn about all of the history of this amazing park.
