When Is the Best Time to Visit the Front Range?

As Coloradans often preach, the state has the best weather all the time. This answer isn’t wrong per se, but it isn’t exactly true. Like the state of Colorado, the Front Range has two major tourist seasons- the winter months and the summer. Each season attracts a different type of adventurer, so depending on what you intend on doing, dictates the best time of year to visit.

The Front Range can be enjoyed year-round, but if you are hoping to backpack, camp, bike, or hike, consider heading out to the mountain range in the summer. Summers in the Front Range region see vibrant wildflowers, verdant vegetation and optimal fishing or swimming weather. It is worth noting that along with the warm air and lush greenery presents the increased possibility of getting caught in an afternoon thunder and lightning storm. These afternoon occurrences are notorious among the sky-scraping peaks in the Front Range.

Our favorite month to visit the Front Range might just be autumn. The thinning crowds and the crispness of the fall air appeals to us. Enjoy the sights of the vibrant aspen trees and trek along the crispy leaves that line the paths. Note that the autumn at high elevation warrants snowfall so though it may be warm at the trailhead, an autumn summit hike will usually culminate on a snow-dusted peak.

The winter months are equally as busy as the summer months in the Front Range. Adventurers trade their hiking boots for snowshoes or skis as they explore the snowy mountain range. There are plenty of ski resorts that litter the Front Range region and intrepid adventurers can even backcountry ski down the impressive peaks. The Colorado Front Range is a crowd-favorite for a reason, and the versatility of its peaks attract adventurous spirits year-round.

Other Outdoor Activities in the Front Range

The Front Range offers much more than just breathtaking wilderness hikes and summit treks. There are outdoor activities to satisfy all sorts of outdoor enthusiasts, and hiking is just one. There are plenty of exciting opportunities to participate in, like off-roading up one of many certified OHV summit trails, backcountry skiing down the Berthoud Pass or snowshoeing through Homestead Meadows.

There are also many reservoirs, alpine lakes, and rivers perfect for fishing! The Cheesman Canyon is not only an awesome hike, but a renowned fishing destination. Like we said, this region has it all and will please all sorts of adventurous spirits.
