Best Winter Hike In Colorado

November 17, 2019

What are the best walk through light displays in Colorado?

Christmas in Colorado affords many opportunities to admire holiday lights, from those in our own neighborhoods to drive-through lights displays to make the season merry and bright. But if you want to get out of the car and experience a delightful holiday lights show on foot, then head to Denver’s Botanic Gardens for their annual Blossoms of Light and spend all evening marveling at the ever-changing displays at this Christmas light hike in Colorado (More on this phenomenal holiday event can be found in the article above).

Want another unique holiday lights experience? Then head to the tiny, charming town of Salida, where the mountain at the end of Main Street is entirely illuminated each Christmas season with thousands of LED lights, colorful and sparkling in the most dazzling way.

Still another holiday lights display best viewed on foot is the Greeley Griswolds house, where you may feel like you’re in the “Christmas Vacation” with the Griswolds, themselves!

Can I go hiking in the winter in Colorado?

Absolutely. Yes you can go winter hiking in Colorado, in spite of the heavy snowfalls experienced each year in the Centennial State. A few of our favorite trails for winter hikes are the 1.1-mile, mostly flat trail around Lily Lake in Estes Park, the St. Mary’s Glacier trail (1.5 miles long) in Idaho Springs, and any of the 15 miles of trails that wind through the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. Dress warmly!

What are the best parks to visit in the winter in Colorado?

It goes without saying that Colorado’s many ski resorts are superb parks to visit in the wintertime (ALL winter, in fact), but if you’ re looking for something less crowded and less expensive that still offers hours of fun in the snow, head to Frisco Adventure Park and Frisco Nordic Center in Frisco. Here, you’ll find snow tubing, 13 miles of snowshoe trails, and 17 miles of trails for cross-country skiing.
