Tips for a Great Hike in Breckenridge

By: April Boone

Summer is a great time to enjoy a hike in the mountains of Breckenridge Colorado. The daytime temperature warm up nicely and the views are filled with beautiful wildflowers and majestic wildlife.

But unless you are a skilled hiker, there are tips you should heed before setting off for a hike in this area.

First bring plenty of water. Hiking at a high altitude means the air is very dry and sweat evaporates faster. Stay hydrated and stop often to rest and enjoy the scenery.

Prepare for any weather. The weather can change very fast so always be prepared for different conditions on the mountain trails. The day can start out bright and sunny and turn stormy very fast.

Wear good hiking shoes and socks.

Keep your feet happy on this hike and you can better enjoy the experience.

Wear sunscreen and bring some with you to reapply during the hike. The sun in high elevations is more intense than at lower elevations.

Leave no trace. Please respect the beauty Breckenridge offers so others can enjoy. Make sure that the water bottles and wrappers that you bring with you all find their way to the trash can or more importantly to the recycle bin.

After all this hiking you deserve a treat and in Colorado it is easy to brew up some fun

Fort Collins is home to numerous microbreweries – each offering tours. Colorado ranks third in the nation in the number of brewpubs and craft breweries. This could have something to do with the large number of festivals in Fort Collins: Wine Fest, Poudre River Fest, Taste of Fort Collins, Colorado Bug ClassicFree Web Content, Colorado Brewers Festival. The end of summer vacation is celebrated with the NewWestFest.
