Colorado Summer Activities

Summer Activities

There is a long list of summer activities in Colorado, and summer in Colorado is magical. Many now-local Coloradans will tell you that “they came for the winter but stayed for the summer.” In other words, if you think winter in Colorado is super fun, you can’t get enough of it. Well, wait until you discover all the summer activities in Colorado.

Your Passions Are Here

Colorado is definitely more than snowy mountains, long ski runs, powder snow, and dream-come-true terrain parks, but that works for many. Actually, Colorado is an amazing place year-round. Here are some interesting Colorado summer attractions:

  • Colorado has more than 4,000 lakes. Some of these lakes are rather large reservoirs, while others are completely natural. Most lakes allow paddle sports, sailing, and fishing. While others include power craft, water skiing, and jet skiing.
  • Colorado has 42 state parks, most of which feature a lake or large area of land—combining water sports, land recreation, and camping.
  • Gold medal fishing – home to 322 miles of it.
  • Colorado has more than 5,683 miles of hiking trails. Travelers come worldwide to hike the centennial state’s beautiful trails.
  • Hiking is one of the most popular summer activities, with over 39,000 miles of trails to explore.
  • Discover 6,821 miles of mountain biking trails. Plus, many ski areas have summer lift services for mountain bikers.
  • Narrow gauge scenic train rides resulting from the Gold Rush days. These provide amazing sightseeing and an exploration of Colorado’s history.
  • Off-road and Jeep tours. Another great way to explore some of Colorado’s 24,906 miles of unpaved roads and see the mountainscapes.
