The Most Accessible Adventures in Colorado

From wheelchair-friendly hot springs to hikes for flatlanders to scenic overlooks fit for everyone, we found 29 accessible adventures that allow just about anyone to experience the state’s grandeur.

Coloradans love to brag about the tens of miles they hiked (or ran) to reach a pristine alpine lake or the number of 14,000-foot mountains whose summits they’ve scaled. But the truth is that you don’t have to be an ultra-anythinger to enjoy many of the state’s classic pursuits—and the back-of-beyond wilderness access they provide. Whether you use a wheelchair for mobility, are entertaining flatlanders, or just want to score sweeping, breathtaking vistas without, you know, losing your breath, we’ve got an outdoor recreation opportunity for you.
