Front Range Hiking Trails: The Best Hikes Near Denver

First Posted: 05/27/10 07:06 PM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 05:35 PM ET

Governor Ritter is scheduled to sign House Bill 1131, dubbed the "No Child Left Indoors" bill. The bill will provide funding for low-income youth to engage in outdoor activity.

To honor the passage of HB 1311--and because we feel inspired by the warm weather, as well as the approach of Memorial Day--we thought we'd take a look at our favorite hikes on the Front Range. These trails span the spectrum from easy walks to more grueling climbs, and they're all within a few hours of Denver.

We recommend the Grazing Elk Loop, but South Valley Park has a number of other great easy hikes as well. Hikers and runners alike can easily piece together trails in this system to lengthen or shorten their trip as necessary.
