If you're looking for a mild/moderate Colorado hike full of beautiful Colorado scenery, keep reading. This hike has some of just about everything but isn't very difficult. The hike up to just Mitchell Lake is really quick/easy, just a mile...then its two more to get up to Blue Lake. I would suggest hitting both as getting up to Blue Lake isn't too difficult and as you can see, behind those sweet ColoradoCool Hats, the scenery is well worth a moderate Colorado hike.

Democrat.

Limbaugh/715 Trail (Colorado Springs)
Limbaugh / 715 Trail - Monument to Palmer Lake Labor Day weekend in CO is probably one of the most difficult times to escape crowds. Luckily, Colorado Springs is full of amazing forests. We know wherever there are some badass Ponderosa Pines there are likely some badass trails. Even better,...
