We have had winter weather these past few weeks which has cut most people’s hiking season short. There are still a lot of hikes closer to Denver and Colorado Springs that don’t take you too far into the mountains.
We like to hike Devil’s Head trail (although cold at the tower) and Red Rocks Canyon Loop Trail (2.25 miles) in Colorado Springs.
Fall is a great time to get in some lowland hikes before the winter really sets in. There are still golden leaves on the trees too!
