Colorado is the land of beautiful mountain peaks that can be reached on varied and equally beautiful trails, the land where the lakes are still and blue, the land of canyons and other unique formations, the land of exquisite culinary and cultural experiences. While the state is amazing in winter, with the world’s best powder snow and amazing skiing opportunities, the Centennial State is amazingly varied and spectacular in the warm season. Here are a few activities that can be enjoyed only in summer:
– Backpacking and camping – Colorado has 44 state parks that stretch on a total of 22 million acres. The forests, meadows, grasslands, cliffs and canyons can be best explored hiking – just grab some warm clothes, some cans of food and a tent and set off on one of the marked trails;
– Mountain biking – the state has lots of beautiful trails designed for bikers;
– Boating – Colorado has lots of large and small lakes and reservoirs where you can enjoy boating tours or where you can hire a jet-ski or a kayak. The mighty Colorado River also runs through the state and is open for explorations in the form of organized white-water rafting tours.

Not only are these homes beautiful and in a secure gated location, but the community offers access to biking and hiking trails, social events, pool, tennis and golf.
