As we move from fall to winter, nature gives us the opportunity to admire its beauty in a whole different light. This winter, if you’re planning a hike, these are some locations you definitely want to consider visiting.
Cold Weather Hikes You Cannot Pass Up On
Attention outdoor lovers: The season that makes us trade in our sneakers for snowshoes is here and that means it is time to get ready to hit the snowy trails. Winter hiking brings a completely different experience than in any other season. If you’re looking for an exciting place for a new adventure, here are some great Colorado locations you will certainly want to keep in mind.
The Rockies were graced with so much beauty, it is almost unreal. Lily Lake, Chasm Lake and Two Rivers Lake all offer different difficulty levels, but they are some of the most stunning views your eyes will have the privilege to see. You’ll have a hard time picking between these amazing locations. The trail at Lily Lake is handicap accessible.
Saint Mary’s Glacier
In Aparaho National Forest, you’ll find this hiking gem. You can hike up, enjoy the killer panoramic view and then snowboard down the glacial. This trail is easy to hike with some good snowshoes that provide traction. To add to the list of appealing things, this is conveniently located just an hour drive away from Denver.
Staunton State Park
This is another great hike that is close to the city, about forty minutes up 285. The fact that it is the state’s newest park, takes nothing away from it. It is a great place to explore and admire the wildlife. Just make sure you bring your gear and heavy winter clothing.
