Summer Colorado hiking towns help

Jump to last reply

Need help to choose 2 Colorado towns for 9 days stay (. We are flying to Colorado Springs on 9/15/13. We have visited Ouray and Telluride before. It was pretty good, I would rate B or B+. When we hike, we want to be wowed. We want to be thrilled along the way with views of looming peaks and pretty waterfalls. We like vistas that stretch from horizon to horizon. We like precipitous cliffs and trails that cling to them. We like river canyons sometimes. We do not like to hike through the woods for hours. All the hikes should be completed within a day or less.
We like to have a good view from condo or at least from downtown of city where we stay. We like to drive a less if it is possible (hiking from hotel door in Ouray was good) and comeback at night to cozy, but not empty downtown (like Jackson,WA) for dinner and stroll. I will appreciate any advice.
