Hello all! I am hoping to find the information I am looking for here on this site from people who are familiar with the area. Had a trip planned for South Dakota in a week but it looks like nothing but rain, which for a trip revolved around hiking will not work. So Planning on visiting Colorado. I am looking for a couple day hikes around Denver, Colorado Springs and Summit County. Not wanting to go too much west of Aspen area. I am looking for hikes around 10 miles with some spectacular views and possibly a lake to fish. As for the camping, I would prefer a campground with a shower facility. Thank you!

Nearby is Estes Park with lots of venues for both. (If you have not already been)

Encampment, and Saratoga / Vedauwo WY are nearby and worthwhile enroute and nearer to SD. (if weather is better)

Glenwood Springs is worth the extra drive if it is crummy weather (Hot Springs) .

Colo Springs nice for hiking / day activities.

You might like hiking Mt. Rosa out of North Cheyenne Canyon - a tad over your distance and a lot of elevation gain. You can hike in from a few different directions to the reservoirs on Pikes Peak, also.
