Another glorious Colorado weekend is upon us… so what are you going to do to celebrate? Instead of doing the same old thing as always, we recommend expanding your horizons this weekend by taking this overnight hike that is sure to be one of the coolest things you will do all summer:

Spanning from the Maroon Bells to Buckskin lies the glorious Four Pass Loop; a 27-mile round-trip backpacking excursion that takes you through some of the most gorgeous scenery in the state! Covering four different mountain passes at an elevation of at least 12,000 feet, Four Pass Loop is by no means a beginners hike (from beginning to end, you will experience an elevation gain of a whopping 8,000 feet!), but is one that is worth working up to in order to experience the area’s colorful wildflowers, majestic mountains, and lush valleys. As if all of this wasn’t enticing enough, the Four Pass Loop also offers an unforgettable place to camp out each night that comes complete with clear skies and some of the brightest stars you have ever seen.
