One of the best things about living in Denver, Colorado is the close proximity to dozens of great hikes. At Atlas Media, LLC, we take advantage of that every week. We absolutly love designing beautiful and creative websites, but working at a desk, in front of a computer can be tough.
 
On the weekends we love to take roadtrips to different parts of the state, but our guilty pleasure is the early morning weekday hike. There are TONS of great hikes within 15-30 minutes of the downtown area ranging from quick and easy to somewhat strenuous. Below we’ve included a list of some of the best hikes within 30 minutes of Downtown Denver. All hikes are between 3-7 miles and take between 1-3 hours.
