2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Best places to hike in CO?   Tue Jun 04, 2013 1:37 pm

I live between Denver and Boulder and I know there are a bunch of Husky owners in CO and I have read basically all of the hiking posts with dogs on here in Colorado. But I was wondering what your guys favorites were? Any places that resemble the pacific nw in plant growth? (Most hikes I have done are your typical beautiful alpine desert) Also what are the most beautiful hikes you have done? My pup is over a year now and I am starting to get her out more on the longer hikes, curious of the ones I shouldn't miss!

Hi there. I live in NY now, but I'm originally from Colorado. A hike that I loved, that was challenging was hanging lake near Glenwood Springs. Last summer, when visiting, we also hiked Byers Peak. It was awesome, very beautiful, and pretty deserted. Not many people back there at all. It's just outside Winter Park.

I went to university in Boulder and lived in Denver for 6 years and my absolute favorite hikes in the nearby area were Golden Gate Canyon Park and Eldorado Canyon Park...I miss them just writing this now.

Well you have read everywhere I have hiked but I don't really have a fav spot. I tent to not redo hikes unless they are close and in summer can't really do them with the huskies cause of heat. There was on hike I would not mind redoing but need time to think of the name, great lake and lots of wildflowers, will have to check my work computer for the folder.

One of the prettiest hikes I've done is Lake Isabelle in the Brainard Lake Rec area. If you buy a pass, you can go explore several other pretty hikes with your pup. Should be relatively close to you also. Takes me about 1.5-2 hours to get there from Denver and it takes me at least 10-15 minutes to hit the interstate.

This was in August, so I bet if you go late Spring, you'll be able to catch more wildflowers along the way.

Thanks for the responses! I have done Hanging Lake on my move out here a few years ago and I have backpacked Isabelle Glacier/Pawnee peak it was a very pretty hike but both I did before my husky. Guess I will have to redo!

I also liked Herman Lake (off I-70 right before the tunnel) and Columbine Lake in Frasier. Silver Dollar Lake and Murphy Lake off Guanella Pass is nice too....I tend to do more of lake trails.

I'm sure Jenn will send you some of the summit hikes she's done.
