My husband and I had some time to kill and wanted to go on a short hike in the beautiful weather, so we noticed a trail that is a ski run in the winter. What a beautiful hike we had, and so peaceful up there....More

I selected this trail because I only had the morning on the day I was leaving town to do some hiking. The trail is mostly level, goes through both tree shaded and open areas. Wildflowers can be superb the days after evening rainfalls. Good area...More

We rented mountain bikes and rode up to the ying yang and then down the other side and ended up at the Rodeo bus station. It was very fun. It was brutally hot in the middle of a July day so I would recommend getting...More

There is a trail called the Tom Blake trail off of owl creek road. There is parking at the trailhead. It's a unique hike, not real difficult but in the summer there are huge Aspen trees and lots of wild flowers. We enjoyed how different...More
