Hiking is a popular recreational activity during the hot, dry Colorado summers. There is no snow for skiing and snowboarding in the scorching summer months of June – late August/early September, so Denverites and Coloradoans turn to hiking as a source of exercise and entertainment in the summer months. Other summer activities include mountain biking on these same trails, rock climbing, white water rafting and tubing, fishing, camping, water skiing, and canoeing – among other outdoor summer sports. The popular winter activities that typically start gearing up in early November consisting of skiing, snow boarding, snowshoeing, ice fishing, and fireplace gathering balance out the summer activities. It’s a great combination that you will never get bored of. Colorado truly is a wonderful playground for all sorts of outdoor activities to encourage a healthy lifestyle.
