EcoGear Travels – Royal Gorge Trail

Our friend, Jared, explored Royal Gorge Trail in Canon City, Colorado with our Snow Leopard 40L Hiking Backpack. Check out the video above to go along on the journey with him!

Canon City is located about 115 miles south of Denver and is well-known for its beautiful natural scenery. Royal Gorge Trail is the perfect trail for hiking beginners and experts, or just anyone who wants to enjoy a breathtaking view.

With our spacious 40L Snow Leopard backpack, hikers can bring all of their necessities to ensure their hike is one to remember. The main compartment includes a sleeve to hold a hydration bladder, so you can stay hydrated on-the-go.

Here’s are some of Jared’s memories from his time in Royal Gorge Trail:

Waking up in Red Canyon Park, Utah to a blanket of fresh snow was initially not a welcomed surprise. Laura and I were planning to go rock climbing that morning, but those hopes were immediately dashed as we crawled out of our campsite. However, trying to take advantage of the spring snow, we drove up the highway to the Royal Gorge area. Known for their huge bridge and incredible landscapes, we hiked along the canyon rim through the snow hoping for some good views. We were not disappointed. As the canyon came into view, a train was chugging along next to the river, with the soft snowflakes falling all around. After a short (and cold) stop for a snack, we headed back out to find the elusive sunshine.
