Don’t let this month pass without experiencing one of the greatest natural gifts Colorado has to offer – wildflowers in abundance.
July is peak wildflower season in Colorado, and the best way to spend it is out on the trails. Here are a few of the best wildflower hikes that high country has to offer:
• Aspen to Crested Butte: An 11-mile hike that takes about 7-9 hours, most popular in July.
• Dallas Divide: Not much of a hiker? Skip the trails for this scenic drive with wildflowers on full view.
• Chicago Basin: Make it a backpacking trip in the Weminuche Wilderness!
