Recreation and Activities

Get out and play. Whether you are looking for an extreme adventure or just one that's extremely fun, you'll find it in Colorado. Hike one of the state's 54 "fourteeners" — mountains that reach an altitude of more than 14,000 ft (4,200 m). Go whitewater rafting down one of our many rivers. Ride a mountain bike along the Colorado Trail, a route famous for its 700 km of trails. Or try something new: Load up a llama or packhorse with your equipment and hike to the backcountry. You can even live like a cowboy and take a horseback ride at a Colorado dude ranch. You'll also find plenty of relaxing activities waiting for you. Take a dip in a natural hot springs, get a massage at one of our many resorts, or go shopping for antiques. There's never a shortage of fun things to do in Colorado.
