Fitness Tip: Looking for a rigorous workout in Craig?

If you’re looking to get fit and don’t want to spend time or money in the gym, try hiking Cedar Mountain, which offers several different hikes.

Cedar Mountain trails offer easy, moderate and difficult hikes for those seeking fitness options outside that aren’t too far from the heart of Craig.

“Cedar Mountain is a prominent landmark located five miles northwest of Craig, Colorado,” states the Bureau of Land Management’s website. “The mountain encompasses an 880-acre block of public land and represents a significant resource due to its suitability for communication facilities and proximity to the community of Craig. Cedar Mountain has an elevation of 6,500 feet, and rises 1,000 feet above the Yampa Valley providing panoramic views. Cedar Mountain offers a wide variety of recreational opportunities year round. Additionally, Cedar Mountain’s natural qualities provide opportunities to experience isolation and solitude just a few miles from Craig.”

To get there: Take U.S. Highway 40 west from Craig one mile, turn right on Moffat County Road 7, go north for 5 miles then turn right on Cedar Mountain Access (BLM Route # 2190).
