Bergen Peak State Wildlife Area

This is the excerpt for a featured content post.

Dead tree at the first clearing on the Bergen peak loop

This is one of my favorite hiking loops as the trail offers a good workout and a chance to get away from crowds and see some wildlife, but not have to drive far from Denver. Be aware on the trail and keep a look out, this trail is less traveled than nearby Elk Meadows Park and it’s highly likely that you will run across animals so make noise as your hiking and avoid sneaking up on the wildlife in the area. While the Map I use indicates that this is a 2.8 mile hike, other sources on the internet say everything from 2.8 to 4.5. I came in with a total distance of 3.5 miles on my GPS.
