Living in Boulder – Winter Hiking & Activities


The Boulder area is ideal for outdoor winter activities and offers easy access to the mountains, trails, parks and open space. Boulder offers hiking, walking, running, skiing, snowshoeing, outdoor group workouts, cycling and so much more. After your activity, don’t forget to pick up a carryout meal from Boulder’s great restaurants or grab a craft beer.

For a great 45-minute workout, head to Mount Sanitas, better known by locals as the stair-master hike. We suggest getting out early in the morning to avoid the people. Dogs are welcome with doggie bags available at trailheads (though it’s always a good idea to bring your own!).

Here are some other ways to enjoy the winter weather and get outside:
