Best Hiking Trail

Because its loops hook together for 13 diverse miles, joining up with the Paul Intemann Memorial Trail and Section 16, giving intrepid and intimidated hikers alike plenty of options. Because Manitou's Incline and Barr Trail are crowded and dull next to the comparatively deserted Red Rock Canyon trails that roll through some of the prettiest topography in Colorado. Because, for free, you can picnic comfortably with your family and Fido, then spend the afternoon exploring cliffs and marshes. And because, in addition to the Chaco-wearing dog-walking crowd, runners, rock climbers and equestrians are also welcome. — Deidre Schoolcraft
