Its the time of year where our family begins planning our next year's summer outings.
What would you recommend as a good family-friendly (either drive up or short/relatively easy backpacking), hammock-friendly location within say 3 hours of Denver? We've been to good number but often get in a rut and want to try some new places. Also, I have a decent campground guidebook but I find personal recommendations are much more valuable.
I'll start with two we like; Queen May loop at Turquoise Lake (super pretty) and Pickle Gulch (very close to Denver).
Those in Colorado, what are your favorites?
