Explore the most popular mountain biking trails in Colorado with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Great views of mountains and city, did not expect that being right in the middle of the city setting.
It was nice to get a quick/challenging hike in, then go to lunch, then get grocery shopping done all in one trip!

man what a workout but worth it. icy would suggest using spikes.

Amazing trail! Easy to follow and breathtaking views. Muddy and icy for some parts as expected so be sure to have proper hiking footwear. Enjoy!!!

Great challenge for anyone. Scenic views. Well trafficked but not over crowded.

This should be rated as an easy trail as it is either paved or a crushed rock base and the grades are gentle. This section of trail connects to other trail systems that can get you from the mountains to downtown Denver. Take a look at the maps and make your own suburban adventure.

One of my all-time favorite hikes! Close to home but it doesn't feel like a lame weekend warrior kind of trail. Great starter hike for the inexperienced.

beautiful scenery!

dog-friendly Park! There are many different trails for just a casual walk or if you want to make it long distance! Would highly recommend.

Nice mostly off road trail. Well pathed. Good for walking also biking. Can continue on the Coal Creek trail instead of onto Louisville.

This hike was so enjoyable, with hardly any huffing and puffing. Nothing but spectacular views from top to bottom. To top things, we only saw one other hiker. You can see everything from the top including the Indian peaks wilderness, and I am pretty sure even longs peak to the north. You could still see boulder also. This is a great beginner’s hike. It was breathtaking with all the snow called vistas!

This was such a fun trail with breathtaking views! It had just snowed and the red rock against the white powder was so beautiful! The uphill was a bit challenging for someone who doesn’t hike a lot, but the views and experience were truly amazing!

First time doing this one. Beautiful views of the front range. Geography. With the homie Lo & Ra. Although, it’s a week day in early afternoon and was extremely busy.. don’t think I’ll be back here unless for Leisure.

beautiful trail and perfect weather on 1/14. 6-8 inches of snow on each side of the trail, moderately packed snow on the trail itself. used micro spikes pretty much all the way.

My first hike in Colorado was great , this trail is easy to do, though I would recommend micro spike if you worried about slipping, the snow is pretty packed down hard !

Easy, brisk trail, great one for beginners

this says loop but I did an out and back?? anyways, it was beautiful! I went early morning and nobody was there. I am new so took a lot of breaks but otherwise an easy hike

Today we did the Canyon Loop. It had quite a bit of snow but it was well packed so no need for snowshoes. There were some muddy spots. This was an easier hike.

Muddy but a great quick hike

Although unmarked, I enjoyed the trails :)

Kids love the mines at the end of the trail. Great shade on a hot day!
Gets cool at the mines after September.

Beautiful views!!
You can make this hike as easy or hard as you want.

Went on 1/15. Not too many people, made my own route to make it longer and went to the top of Mt. Falcon. With the snow it was definitely a decent workout! Snow was packed, no need for spikes or poles.

Super well-marked, fun trail to run. The elevation gain is gradual enough that it's a good workout, but not killer. Trail is really rocky in some sections, though, which makes running a little more hazardous, but not impossible.

The mapped trail was wrong in a few places.

Perfect. Yak tracks or microspikes help but not required.

This trail has a cool lookout area where you can see the Bald Eagle nesting area.

We started hiking this from the Platte River end and we made it 3 miles in the snow before we had to turn around. It was gorgeous and amazing and with the right gear I would do it again in the snow, but I wasn't prepared and this is what led to us turning back after 3 miles. I can't wait to go back there once the snow melts away so that I can finish what I started.

Great views! Take yourself to the top! Close to Denver and easy to get to. I’ll be back for more. Not sure how it is with snow as I was there back in late November.

Great views! Well worth if you’re already around! Take yourself to the top!
