Denver, Colorado

Any avid hikers/ outdoors folks here want to go on a hike? I have no idea of trails, best spots to go.

Just saw this! I’m up near Boulder and there are tons of great trails up this way. I use the AllTrails app sometimes- it is decent. But if you want suggestions, DM me!

I’m not sure what “easy” is for you, so I’ll link to some that will get your heart are up but have some stretches of a flat or more gentle grade to give you a chance to catch your breath (and are not too long). There are lots of trails that originate in Chautauqua park. There is a great 2.5 mile loop up to the Mesa trail to enchanted Mesa and back down to the dining hall area. You will see from the trail map that you can really choose your own adventure here. It is similar to this one: https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/colorado/enchanted-mesa-and-mclintock-nature-trails?p=25000573 These are some other favorites: Ceran St. Vrain (closer to Lyons which is a fun lunch stop after) https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/colorado/ceran-saint-vrain-trail?p=24907938 Woods quarry (also starts at Chautauqua) https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/colorado/woods-quarry-loop-trail?p=24876152 Lion’s Lair: https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/colorado/lions-lair-trail?p=24997924 Marshall Mesa/Coal Seam: https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/colorado/coal-seam-community-ditch-trail-marshall-mesa-mesa-valley-trail?p=24879470 Rattlesnake gulch: https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/colorado/rattlesnake-gulch-trail?p=25027227 If you want some other recs, DM me!

If you go this time of year, pack some snow traction (like a yak trax). I was up at Chautauqua a few times this week and the conditions in the shade are hard packed ice.

Do you think considering someone your best friend requires that they also consider you as their best friend?
