Hiking Attractions.

I'm planning a trip to the Denver area in the early fall, and am looking for a family friendly hiking trail. I hear the scenery is beautiful there, any recommendations?

When you do find a spot, take pictures and post em up. That would be awesome.

My friend actually has a house in Breck, we go up there during the summers. Hiking is plentiful there for sure. Haven't heard of Mohawk lakes but I wouldn't doubt they're beautiful, I'll have to check it out next time we head that way!

I always go snowshoeing up in that area...Beautiful scenery.


Above Mohawk Lake in Mayflower Lake:


I believe that in between the two there is a pretty good waterfall to visit.
