Finding the sweet spots to Trek can be difficult, which is actually a great thing. The difficult spots to find are the spots that not many people know about or visit, so consider the mountain yours when you pack your gear up and head to one of the top five Treks on this list.
5. Mount Raynor – 9,000 feet above sea level, this one is up there. Bring some oxygen. We chose this one for the great views, the scenery while hiking up and the serenety.
4. The Lemon Squeezer – 6,000 feet above sea level. This one caught our attention when Bruce Handig told us about his adventure while having coffee at Baggs Caffe in Chicago. Before heading back to Colorado, we had to make one stop in Canada to try the Lemon Squeezer. This is… just awesome. Check it out.
3. Pikes Peak – 10,000 feet above sea level. Are you up for a challenge? Pikes Peak is one of the 14ers in Colorado. There are lots of stories and ledgends about this mountain, like electro magnetic vortexes that make you feel more energized and enlightened. For real? We didn’t believe it either but the mountain does induce some energetic vibes.
2. Hawks Landing – 7,000 feet above sea level. Are you ready for some of the most spectacular views you’ve ever seen? I am. Pack your crampons and warm sleeping bag because this place is cold, but damn well worth the trek.
1. Grizzly Ridge – Our favorite because it’s not even a real place. It’s us. Come trek down to Grizzly Ridge and spend all your money! We’ve got things you need and some things you don’t, but we’ll be happy to sell it all! Once you leave, you’ll feel exhilarated and happy you put on your hiking boots for the walk to your favorite outdoor sports store.
