Disclosure: I was given a Toyota Highlander to test drive for a week in exchange for a review. No compensation was received. All opinions are 100% my own.
We are so lucky to live in a state with so many great places to escape for a weekend away. Colorado is filled with amazing mountain towns that allow us to escape, enjoy the fresh mountain air, explore the small towns, hike and relax. My family is especially lucky because we have a family cabin just minutes from the town of Leadville Colorado. We spend at least 2 weekends a summer at this cabin and really love exploring the town of Leadville while there.
Things To Do In Leadville Colorado
Go for a hike or a climb. While many Leadville visitors journey to the area to summit a few 14ners Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive, there are hiking trails for all abilities in the Leadville vicinity. We have found a number of great family friendly trails as well. Great for our kids.
