The BEST Hikes 1 HOUR From Denver! | Sleepy Lion Trail and Sugarloag Mountain

Here are two fantastic hikes that you can find only 1 hour from hustling bustling Denver! "Sugarloaf Mountain" is located in Boulder County. Once you turn off onto Sugarloaf Rd, be prepared for a bit of a scary ascent in your car! The hike itself is a short one, but it is not lacking in quality. The hike leads you along a ridge of the mountain with the reward of panoramic mountain views at the summit. "Sleepy Lion Trail" is located near Lyons. This hike offers so much including a river, meadows, lion flowers, mountain views, and a gorgeous reservoir at the end! I couldn't recommend both of these hikes enough.
