Colorado is home to over 22 million acres of public land to explore. You can find soul-refreshing waterfalls, hidden trails, and magical summit views all within a few hours’ drive no matter where you’re starting your trip. We have narrowed down the best beginner backpacking trips in Colorado all in different areas across this beautiful state.

 These backpacking trips range from two to five days and explore the vastness Colorado has to offer while being perfect for any beginner!


Weather Warning: Colorado is renowned for its constantly changing weather. Even in the middle of August, weather can rapidly change from clear, sunny skies to rain, snow, or hail. Normally, you won’t be stuck in this weather for long, but being prepared will help you have the best time in the backcountry.


While each new backpacker is entering into the sport with a different set of skills and fitness levels, we’ve crafted a list of trips with all beginner backpackers in mind. These trips fit a few criteria:

  1. You’ll hike relatively low mileage for the length of the trip.
  2. The trails don’t have extreme elevation gain for the region (However, Washington mountains are known for being steep and rugged due to the intense amount of rainfall, so you can’t escape elevation gain here!) 
  3. You’ll travel on well-maintained trails and avoid tricky terrain like boulder fields. 
  4. You’ll get a lot of bang for your buck, whether in the form of peaks, alpine lakes, or lush meadows. (Many people neglect this crucial factor.)
