Fall Hikes

Hike We Like: Fern Lake Trail, RMNP

Navigate through steep mountainsides, plunging waterfalls and golden foliage on this trail in Rocky Mountain National Park that leads to Fern Lake.

Hike We Like: Mount Yale

The standard route up this straightforward fourteener gains 4,300 feet—and rewards you with views of 30 more fourteeners you’ll be inspired to climb.


Hike We Like: Gem Lake

Catch the last vestiges of fall color in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Gilded Trails

Fall in Colorado’s wilderness—a brilliant display of varied yellow and hues—is best viewed from the trail. Get outside this autumn with one (or more!) of 15 hikes, from the Front to Vail to Ouray—all of which will put you in middle of the splendor.

Hike We Like: Kenosha Pass

This bucket-list hike west of Bailey, Colorado is part of the epic Colorado Trail—but offers a mild stroll through winding groves of Aspen.
