Sorry for yet another itinerary thread...I swear I searched first! haha. Buddy of mine and I are in Denver for a long weekend (Sat-Tues in July). We’re staying in an Airbnb in Denver, Capitol Hill area. Here is what we have so far, would love some input!
Saturday - Arrive 10am, pickup rental SUV, use city culture pass (rent bikes, botanical, nature and science), hit breweries, Skyline Garden, and find a live music spot(recommendation?).
Sunday - Drive to Colorado Springs, Garden of Gods, Pikes Peak, find a short hike (recommendation?), back to Denver by way of Red Rock Amp and Coors Brewery. With this short of a trip is it worth venturing there? Or should we another day in Denver/RMNP? Those rocks look cool tho...also thought about Zip Line or White Water rafting in place of some of this.
Monday - RMNP. Driving from Denver straight to Bear Lake trailhead. How early do we need to get there? Want to hike to Emerald Lake and not be overwhelmed by people (is that a thing?), then drive Trail Ridge and find another decent hike (Ouvel?).
Tues - Depart.
