After you land in the Mile High City, make your way to your accommodations for the night. Once you’re settled in, venture out to one of Denver’s local restaurants for a bite to eat and wrap up the evening with the last few hours of summer sunshine at an outdoor movie in the park.

Grab breakfast in Denver and begin your trek to the mountains. Check into your hotel in Breckenridge and take your car to a local favorite spot, Boreas Pass. Enjoy epic mountain and valley views along the leisurely hike. Once you get your fill and head back, switch gears to visit the area nearby Baker’s Tank for a bit more of a challenge and serene forest exploration. After your hiking adventure on the mountain, head back to town for dinner and a stop in at a local brewery.

Start your day early with a latte at a local shop downtown, then make the quick commute over to the neighboring town of Frisco. Up first, you’ll embark on a guided kayaking tour. Paddle around protected Frisco Bay where you’ll be surrounded by a variety of wildlife and scenery. You’ll take a lunch break, then head to your second water adventure of the day, whitewater rafting on Blue River. Spend the rest of your afternoon experiencing the south side of Breckenridge with a couple of miles of calm waters followed by adrenaline-pumping class II and III rapids.

Wake up and explore downtown for a bit, stopping to fuel up with a famous crepe at Crepes A La Cart for a late breakfast. Strap on your hiking boots for another day on the trails as you venture to Mohawk Lakes. Take your time in the pine and aspen tree-lined forest as you soak in stunning views of Continental Falls and nearby mountain ranges. You’ll end your day back in Breck and take a gondola ride into town for dinner.

Enjoy one last breakfast in Breckenridge before driving a couple of hours southeast to Colorado Springs. Once you check into your hotel, you’ll depart on your mountain biking tour at the exquisite natural landmark, Garden of the Gods. Cruise through red-rock beauty against a backdrop of Pikes Peak mountaintops and enjoy lunch in the park. Then, you’ll make your way over to Red Rock Canyon Open Space where you’ll choose from several hikes in the area like Hogback and Contemplative Trail, which boast meadow and quarry views. Have dinner (with a side of live music) at a local farm-to-table restaurant located on a 1500-acre sanctuary in the Black Forest.

Today you’re back on the road to Denver. Spend the day surrounded by meadows, wildflowers, and local wildlife as you journey through Meyer Ranch Open Space. After your hiking and picnic, explore the 15,000-acre Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge for an up-close experience in conservation success. Check out prairie dogs, deer, bison, and other wildlife in a protected habitat before dinner and drinks in town to end the night.

Catch a final glimpse of the Colorado mountaintops and green landscape from your plane as you head back home.

Colorado is breathtaking in any season, but this eco adventure underscores the beauty of summer out west. With warm-weather hikes, water excursions, and plenty of outdoor enjoyment, Colorado is proving the truth behind its popular local phrase: people “come for the winter and stay for the summer.”
