by Annie The One Loop Trail In Colorado That’s Perfect For A Short Day Hike, No Matter What Time Of Year
Whether you need to get out to stretch your legs or get in a full-body workout, there is nothing better than a beautiful hike, which is easy to find here in the Centennial State! If short day hikes are your jam, however, you are going to want to take this one Colorado loop trail that is perfect year-round:
Welcome to the Niwot Loop Trail!
Conveniently located along the Front Range near Longmont, the Niwot Loop is a 3 1/2-mile loop trail deemed easy and open year-round.
"Experience the humbling beauty of the plains on the Niwot Trails," invites Boulder County Parks & Open Space, adding that the Loop is home to not only beautiful landscape but also historical irrigation routes.
In addition to the above, the Niwot Loop also features mature trees and a river, making for a perfect day out in Colorado.
Unlike other trails, the path along the Niwot Loop is even and easy to navigate and features an elevation gain of only 111 feet.
Can you see why we love the Niwot Loop Trail and highly recommend it for families as well as hikers of all skill levels?
Please note: Dogs on a leash are permitted on the trail. Bicycles are also allowed, but only on designated parts of the loop.
