Three Scenic Byways in Southern Colorado offer a 3-day road tour for travelers who like frequent stops, short walks and awe-inspiring walking trails that are good for both kids and dogs.
Also see these three byway itineraries, which offer "best of class" experiences. (For the Scenic Highway of Legends, it is geology including the radial dikes of the Spanish Peaks, the Dakota Sandstone Wall, and the K-Pg Boundary (think extinction of the dinosaurs). For the Silver Thread, it is a first-rate visitor experience that tells the stories of 3 charming historic mountain mining towns that sprung up during the US Silver Boom. For Los Caminos Antiguos, it is the cultural history of early Hispano settlement in Colorado.)
