Best place in the world to grow up. Word is out. Many activities to enjoy both in the summer and winter. If you plan on moving here or even visiting save up a lot of money first because nothing is cheap here.

If your in western Colorado don't miss the opportunity to drive from Glenwood Springs to Aspen and beyond. The Roaring Fork Valley is one of those changing vista drives which is full of amazing views as you move through it.

Colorado Hiking (3 Replies)
We plan a week's hiking in mid-June, want to do mild to moderate 3-5 hour hikes among mountains. Cannot decide whether Estes Park or a B and B outside Glenwood Springs in the Roaring Fork valley would be the best base. We want a quiet place and not have to drive too far to start hikes.

I haven't done too much hiking in Glenwood, but my gut says that a week might be too long and you could run out of place to hike that are really close by. Estes is a good option because you have RMNP right there. The park is full of hikes. You could stay a month and hike every day and not do all of them! Several of the primary trailheads are very close to the main entrance to the park, which will reduce the amount of time you have to drive. Also, there are plenty of quiet places in Estes...More
