Find a Trail
Whether it's hiking, biking, wildlife watching, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing - you name it - the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Recreational Trails Program is here to bring you the support and information you want for the adventure of a lifetime. View links to trails in Colorado State Parks, or on other public lands on the Trail Map Links page.
What to Bring on a Day Hike
"Various hiking guides have lists of basic equipment needed for every hike, such as the "10 Essentials," etc. The CMC's (Colorado Mountain Club) members have found through experience that the following items are essential for every trip for every participant; please carry them in your standard day pack and don't go on a trip without them. Don't "share" your essentials with other people, and don't rely on the leader to have extra water, food, or gear for your use." For more information visit www.cmc.org.
