If you are looking for a really beautiful hike that is very moderate try Chief Mountain. We take most of our visiting guests there. Very easy switchback mountain. Depending on where you are staying in Denver its about 45 minutes to an hour away near Genesee Park/Evergreen. When you get to the top, if it is a nice out, you get views of Pikes Peak to the south, Mt Evans directly to the west and Longs Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park to the north. The smoke from the CA and OR fires has pretty much cleared out so it is worth the drive. Just bring and drink lots of water as the elevation is about 12,000 feet.
