Lizard Head Trail is located near the popular destination town as well as a smaller town by the name of Rico and has a little bit of everything when it comes to Colorado's natural beauty.

The trail goes from a gorgeous meadow to a wooded area, followed by a jaunt up a mountain that's straddled by steep drops. At this point, you can look in any direction and see the amazing San Miguel Mountains, as well as a rock formation known as Black Face, a lake, and more.

From here, the trail leads almost all the way to another rock formation known as Lizard Head Peak.

The moderately difficult hike can be taken on foot, though equestrians prefer to travel on horseback.
