There are so many great adventures are right outside our doors; it's one of the amazing reasons why it's awesome to live in Northern Colorado.

I've officially lived in Northern Colorado for nine months. When I first moved to Colorado, I found myself checking All Trails on a daily basis to find the best hikes to take in Northern Colorado.

Admittedly I have not gone on as many as I would like and there are so many in Rocky Mountain National Park that I have yet to take but here are some of my favorite hikes to take. Whether you're looking for a quick, one to two-hour hike to recharge your batteries or longer half-day ones, these are pretty conducive to what you may be seeking to accomplish.
