Aspen Alley is an easy, accessible, and beautiful trail in Nederland that is a great option for viewing aspen fall foliage. Going out and back to Aspen Alley is only 1.3 miles and a doable hike with baby. Although we had some challenges, I’m glad we went with Yuzu.
The Ceran Saint Vrain Trail is a lovely 3.8 mile out-and-back hike in Roosevelt National Forest that is a great option for an easy hike. It is also a convenient spot for backpacking / dispersed camping.
This 8.5-mile, 1,450 ft-elevation gain moderate hike may be less well-known than other hikes in the Front Range, but it features some lovely and different views from other areas. In particular, the views of the valley, Mahoney Park, and the mountains beyond to the West were great.
The Coulson Gulch Trail to Ralph Price Reservoir hike is 6.5 miles out-and-back. It features shady forest by a creek, meadows with mountain views, and a view of a large reservoir at the end. The hike goes downhill on the way out, and uphill on the way back.
