While I love to hike in the fall to see all the colors, for those short on time a good way to see the fall colors is the Peak to Peak highway.
If you are looking for a great Fall hike to an alpine lake then Gibson Lake might be for you. Great fall colors on a challenging hike.
The Fall is an amazing time of year with all of the leaves changing. For my first view I checked the Fall Colors of Colorado at Kenosha Pass.
