Please pass the organic, vegetarian-fed, locally raised, free-range turkey (or tokurfy) – Thanksgiving is nearly here, Boulderites! With full bellies and full hearts, it’s that time of year when we give thanks and celebrate with friends and family.
Whether you’re a guest or the host, you may be looking for Thanksgiving Day activities that go beyond binge eating and sitting on the couch. (Not that there’s anything wrong with binge eating and sitting on the couch.) Ten hours of togetherness is a lot without any diversions, and it’s going to feel a lot longer if somebody brings up the election. Fear not, Boulderites, because we have hundreds of trails at our boot tips and for that we are thankful! When the revelers become restless, it’s time to redirect them toward the trails.
Your Thanksgiving crew is probably a mixed bag. You need a hike that will suit everyone – kids, grandparents, locals, out-of-towners, and more. It’s a tall order, but don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. You keep working on that stuffing recipe (it’s going to be great!) and let us handle the hikes.
Note: Weather and trail conditions change quickly this time of year. Use caution when heading out in inclement weather. Wear or bring warm mid layers, a waterproof outer layer, and extra food and water. Icy and/or snowy trails may require foot traction.
