Bike outdoors in Longmont. Photo: Sherri O’Hara.

We love the outdoors in Longmont. The city rests along the beautiful backdrop of the Front Range, and the towering majesties of Longs Peak and Mt. Meeker. It’s no wonder that you’ll find an appreciation of the outdoors integrated into the layout of the town.

Bikers and walkers love the paths and trails in the Longmont area, and enjoy the St. Vrain Greenway — an eight-mile path from Sandstone Ranch to Golden Ponds that winds through town along the St. Vrain Creek. Golfers find challenging courses in and around town (Warning: some mountain views might make keeping your eye on the ball difficult). Still others crave an authentic western adventure, like horseback-riding at a local ranch or farm. No matter the interest, our 1500 acres of parks and open space can accommodate.

Sportspeople find Longmont to be the ideal gateway to adventure in the Rocky Mountains. A short drive could put you in Rocky Mountain National Park, Roosevelt National Forest, or along the St. Vrain river for hiking, fly fishing, boating, rafting, mountain biking, skiing… the list and the possibilities are endless. Make Longmont your starting point for all of this and more as you explore the vast opportunities of the Front Range.

Birders, bring your binoculars. Several species of raptors call Longmont home year-round, and bald eagles use the Longmont reservoirs on their annual migration routes.

If you’re worried about the climate, don’t be. While no one can guarantee what the weather holds day-to-day, the odds are in your favor – Longmont enjoys over 300 sunshine-filled days annually. Sorry, San Diego, but we’ve got you beat.

Heed the call – your outdoor adventure awaits.
