A Colorado Road Trip From Denver to Black Canyon
Colorado is a positively beautiful state to cruise through, what with its towering mountains and miles of green complemented nicely by the Denver city skyline. There is no better backdrop for a road trip with your soulmate, your family, or your friends. Even though The Mile High City is definitely worth visiting, there is plenty more places to visit and things to see outside the city limits.
Once you have secured your DEN car rental from Avis at the Denver Airport, fire up your GPS and head West for an adventure loaded with breathtaking views and must-visit travel destinations within driving distance from Denver.
Eldorado Canyon State Park
Just a few short miles from the lively bustling college community in Boulder, Colorado, you’ll find complete solitude in the Eldorado Canyon State Park. This is a gorgeous canyon known for its remarkable views and thrilling climbing opportunities, featuring over 500 climbing routes—many of which ascend high-rise cliff sides that frame the canyon.
Before you steer your rental car into the belly of the beast (or canyon) grab some sandwich fixings at Lucky’s Market near the mouth of the canyon. Have a picnic, go rock climbing, hike one of the many state park trails, go fishing, or take a dip at Eldorado’s swimming pool, which is fed natural water from a nearby spring.
Glenwood Springs is a thriving resort city in Colorado and is home to the largest hot spring pool in the world, which you can acquire access to via a hotel reservation at The Glenwood Hot Springs Lodgeor a cheaper day pass.
But a giant pool of mineral water isn’t the only attraction this town has to offer. If you plan on staying for more than just a couple hours, then be sure to take advantage of this city’s other travel destinations and activities.
Take a guided tour through the ancient Glenwood Caverns, enjoy thrilling amusement park rides at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, visit the Frontier Historical Museum, and more.
Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park
The Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park is worth a road trip from across the country, let alone a five-hour drive from the Denver Intl. Airport. Prepare for a truly remarkable experience that you won’t soon forget. This all-natural work of captivation is millions of years in the making, with cliff sides that reach astounding heights beyond 2,500 feet and a steep, narrow chasm sculpted entirely by the elements.
Explore mellow nature walks and advanced hiking trails for the nature-loving thrill seeker. Camp out beneath a starry sky, or plan your trip during the astrology event in July. Regardless of how long you have to drive to stand along the rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, you’ll be glad that you did.
