Colorado Hiking Resources:
Friendly Travel Tip: Buy The Culture Passport as it's a great resource for recreating in the Colorado outdoors. Before you head out on your outdoor adventure however, make sure you're properly prepared. Check the terrain of your hike and weather before leaving. Let someone know exactly where you’ll be going, and plan out your hike with a map. Practice unpacking and repacking your backpack, and using your gear so you know how everything works before you go.
