I'll be in town for work this week and have some free time Thursday starting around 11. I wanted to try Moscoco but the forecast has me a bit nervous. Do T storms pass relatively quickly or should I make other plans ?
Storms in the Rockies aren't something to play around with. If it involves lightning, you should avoid mountains whatsoever. However; if it's just rain, mountains are fine, but you will want to avoid canyon-ie and rocky areas like Red Rocks because of flash floods. That being said, there are many great hikes around the Springs. Pikes Peek or the Incline are both really pretty. I would not recommend them if you are coming from a drastically lower elevation, without acclimating first. There are also great hikes at the Garden Of The Gods and Red Rocks. The Waldo Canyon, the Rampart Reservoir, and the 7 bridges trails are all amazing.
Thank you for the advice Issac. I am from NY and normally hike the ADK region so I'm thinking I should stay away from Pikes as I won't be acclimated yet. The other options sound great though! I just hope the weather holds out.
