Colorado Summer trip - NEED HELP!

Jump to last reply

We are leaving in three days for a 10 day stent in Colorado. Flying into Denver in the morning and spending the 1st day/night in the city. We know we want to see the following, but need help determining a route and filling in days.

- Mt. Evans (Idaho Springs)
- Garden of the Gods (Col. Springs)
- Great Sand Dunes NP
- Great Rocky Mtn NP/Estes Park (coming from west side route, Granby, etc.)

We love to hike, and have already been to Estes several times in the fall. Our 12 year old daughter is traveling with us, and wants to have some "fun"...not ride all day. I've considered hot springs, but she may think that's boring...maybe tubing somewhere! We want to do a rafting trip. Already have a tent night reserved in Moraine Park in GRMNP for 6/28, so need to work around that date too. Thought about Steamboat Springs area, but doesn't look like much. A lot of people are recommending Telluride or Crested Butte.

ANY advise on time for travel between locals and what to see in this short time would be SO appreciated!! Thanks!!
