Although pretty Colorado scenes can be found along the local road or in some city parks, many beautiful destinations require a difficult hike to reach. Here are 10 hard hikes for the experienced Colorado Adventurer.

Author’s Note: The hikes on this list include long distances, steep inclines, and extreme conditions throughout Colorado’s backcountry. Hikes on difficult trails require experience and knowledge of the risks present in high elevations and remote areas. Only expert hikers should attempt the hikes on this list.
