The Hiking Trail Hiding In Denver That Will Transport You To Another World
Congratulations, Denverite; you live in one of the best places on earth not only for careers and a stellar parks system, but also one of the best places for exciting and oh-so scenic hikes! Let us celebrate this fact by taking a hike on this Denver-area trail that will transport you to another world:
Nestled within Rocky Mountain National Park near Estes Park lies the incredible Mills Lake Trail; an out-of-this-world 5.3 miles that is considered to be one of the most beautiful hikes in the state.
Located less than 2 hours from the heart of Denver, the Mills Lake Trail passes through not only the mature trees, abundant wildlife, and rocky cliffs that you have come to expect from RMNP, but also the dramatic Alberta Falls, numerous peaks (including Longs Peak and Thatchtop Mountain), and the clear waters of its namesake Mills Lake.
Named in honor of the "Father of Rocky Mountain National Park" Enos Mills, Mills Lake is truly one of those unforgettable Colorado hikes that deserves to be experienced at least once!
Trail Wiki, access to the Mills Lake Trailhead can be found just beyond the entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park via Bear Lake Rd.
