Within a short drive of Hotel Teatro, you can participate in one of the most exciting Denver Activities in the state – out in open country, surrounded by gorgeous peaks and lush vegetation that you won’t see in metro Denver.

The altitude of the peaks in the Front Range have a staggering range from 5,200 feet up to 14,278 feet. The geology and landscape is overwhelmingly varied, making for a unique hike in the Front Range on each trip. Denver Things to Do like hiking the Front Range may put you in touch with a variety of animal life, such as bighorn sheep, pika (coneys), and marmots on the steep slopes. In the lower coniferous forests, some folks have seen bear, elk, and deer, so make sure that you’re prepared with safety skills and adequate backcountry knowledge before you head out on Denver Activities like this. It’s so worth it, however, when you are ready to tackle the Front Range!
