Belmar Park – Do Yourself a Favor & Get Outside

If you find yourself in the Lakewood area and are in need of a nice leisurely walk, check out Belmar Park. Not only can you take walks, utilizing the numerous trails throughout the park, but bikes are also allowed. It’s super easy to rack up some miles and get a good sweat with all of the intertwining trails throughout the park.

Full of nature’s life, meandering around the pond and watching the sunset is such a beautiful way to end the day.

Like a lot of the other parks in the surrounding Denver area, there are nice picnic areas set up for you, your friends, and family to have lunch while you hang out in this gorgeous place. Last but not least, Belmar Park is animal friendly, so make sure you bring your furry friend.

The Dirty Dump

We tried to make it to Silverthorn (from Denver) lastnight, but that was a big, fat fail. With the amount of snow and pile-ups on i70, there was no way.

We finally made it up earlier this afternoon and are now hanging out in a beautiful condo off of Ryan Gulch Rd.

Where to? Breck? Keystone? Beaver Creek? The opportunities are abundant out here! Where are you headed this weekend? Hopefully somewhere outside that’s inspiring.

Once again, we rented a few pairs of snowshoes from REI (roughly $25 bucks per pair for the weekend) and made the run from Denver to Squaw Pass.

These are the same directions for heading to Echo Lake, however we stopped about 12 miles early at a parking area off of the Pass in front of a large, open grassy area.

We parked, got our gear on, (visit our first Snowshoeing Adventure post to learn what gear will keep you warm and happy!) and headed across the Pass from where we were parked, and picked up a trail in between the cabins that lie a little off of the pass (you can see them from the road).ย  Continue reading
