It’s Impossible Not To Love This Breathtaking Wild Flower Trail In Colorado

It is no secret that Colorado is home to some of the best hiking in the world! In fact, when it comes to walking perfect dirt trails complimented by beautiful surroundings, there is no shortage of options and skill levels to go around. However, if you are searching for a scenic walk that is lined with colorful and fragrant wildflowers, you will want to check out this breathtaking wild flower trail:

Located near Crested Butte, Trail 403 is a nearly 8-mile out-and-back trail that passes through some of the most scenic areas in the Gunnison National Forest. Spanning through lush meadows, mature trees, and steep cliffs, Trail 403 is one that is a must-see for everyone, but beware, as it is a technical trail with a high elevation (more than 11,000 feet!) and several rocky and slippery spots. While the entire trail is nothing short of memorable, our favorite aspect of it has to be the abundant wildflowers, which makes the serene nature even more vibrant and lovely! (I mean, you saw the pictures, right?!)
