Suggestions for backpacking trip from Golden, CO on 09/02/2008 14:15:39 MDT Print View

My family and I (3 children ages 12,10 and 8) want to backpack for 3 nights from Golden, Colorado from Oct 23-26th. Looking for a 3 - 4 mile hike in an area that is not too difficult and where the weather is a little warmer. Willing to drive several hours. Any suggestions?

Thanks!
Meg

Thanks for the suggestions Richard!

We have been to 3 of your 4 suggestions...was thinking of a trip outside the immediate area...perhaps further south? Any other suggestions?

Thanks!
