    Aurora, Colorado 

    Recently discovered a love of hiking. Though I do bike some I don't mountain bike. (Sorry a bit timid right now) I have two kiddos that love to hike with me and a mountain biking hubby who also hikes.
    I live in the great state of Colorado which wow has so many great trails to offer. Though I have visited Montana and well that is where I fell in love with hiking

    We did the loop. Though didn't see any mountain bikers came across a few hikers. The trail is rated as difficult on a pamphlet we received in the visitor's center. We enjoyed this quite a bit though the second half we were pretty beat by the end. Tons of wildflowers, the lakes were amazing, and when you are up at the crest...wow...you can see forever. I do have to admit while up at the top of the crest I became a little scared lol (it would be a looong fall down)

    This trail is right by my house. I love it that many people don't use it. I can walk my dogs or ride my bike. You can almost always see some type of wildlife here. Twice I have even seen coyotes. What I don't like is under the roads there is almost always trash and broken glass. Which makes dog walking somewhat hard. The trail is also used by horses so there is ALWAYS horse poo to dodge and the divits in the ground if you are not careful can twist an ankle. It makes for great bike riding the trail goes quite a bit farther than showed on here. There are also side trails one can take where it gets almost beachy with the sand. My little dog does not enjoy that lol so we stick to main trail

    The kiddos and I hiked this yesterday. We started wit the Travois Trail. My hubby has biked this before and told us if we were going to do the entire trail it was best to start here. But we also did a side loop of Juniper Trail and part of Mayhem Gulch. That adds an extra 1.6 miles to this already VERY long trail. I would say bring water, if you think you have enough bring more! Also, snacks were in order for the kids. We also took the Evening Sun Loop (another .7 miles) total it was 13.7 miles. It took us aprox 5.30 hours to hike this. we saw deer, lizards, a rabbit and heard lots of birds. The kids enjoyed it immensely from looking at all the bugs (my son who is 17 and my daughter who is 11 fell in love with these huge fuzzy caterpillars that were munching on leaves) The trail wasn't too hard but there were some steep parts and near the end the road is fairly rocky. We will hike this again...though only when kids are out of school
