Terrifying Things to Do in Colorado
From climbing mountains to massive canyon swings, here’s a list of Colorado things sure to get your adrenaline pumping. Keep in mind that some of these activities might be dangerous. Stay within your own abilities and use caution when necessary.
Cross the Devil’s Causeway
If you’re scared of heights, this one might rank a little higher. The Devil’s Causeway is a land bridge in the Flat Tops Wilderness and it gets pretty narrow in the middle section – roughly four feet wide. It’s rocky, but if you’re got steady feet beneath you, you’ll be fine.
Be warned, this location is very remote. The trip took me several hours of hiking to make the full loop.
Stare Down a Wolf
Yes, they’re trained to not bite your head off. Yes, they really just act like big puppies in this scenario. Yes, they’ll probably spend more time handing out kisses than growling…but still, staring down a massive wolf is quite the rush. And remember, these are wild animals. During my trip to Rocky Mountain Wolf Foundation (www.rmwf.orf) several wolves were snarling minutes before another one was licking my face. Thankfully, the guides here are very knowledgable and know how to safely interact with their animals.
Explore Colorado’s Coolest Castle
Found in Rye, Colorado, Bishop Castle reaches a height of more than 150 feet tall. While that only might be enough to scare some away, the fact that many of the walkways rattle and shake will fend off others. Thankfully, this attraction can be enjoyed from ground-level. It just won’t be the same rush.
It’s like skydiving elsewhere, but with a better view. If you’ve been waiting to check this one off your bucket list, Colorado is the perfect place to do it. You’ve already jumped out of a plane? Might as well do it again.
