Ten Suggestions for Front Range Places to Have Sex Outdoors

Post a question on the Internet and you'll get answers. Lots of answers.

Take this vintage thread kicked off by someone looking for the best places to have sex outdoors along the Front Range.

Plenty of people weighed in with advice.

And while we can't personally vouch for any of the spots, we feel confident the suggestions came from experience, as it were.

Here are ten photo-illustrated tips for those of you looking to get back to nature.

"Try the Fourth of July hiking trail outside Nederland. There are lots of places to go off the beaten path and fornicate in the forest."

"My favorite is the trail to Alberta Falls in Rocky Mt. National Park starting near Bear Lake. Bring a blanket. Lots of secluded areas but with a view of the falls."

"'Beaver' Brook Trail. The east trailhead starts about 2/3rds of the way up Lookout Mountain. It winds along fairly level for quite awhile, although there is a bit of exposure and rock scrambling in a couple short spots. The trail goes all the way over to Genesee Park and also descends down to Clear Creek. Steep climb up to the west trailhead. Good views and there is an overlook of sorts about a mile in from the east where you can eat lunch and watch the traffic down in the canyon. A fairly busy trail because of being close to the city, but an enterprising person can find privacy with a bit of exploring. Apex Park Trail behind Heritage Square is another option."

"A bit farther in, west of Bergan Park, is the Chief Mountain favorite short hike. The trailhead is across the road from a re-opened ski area or snowboarding park, formerly Squaw Mountain ski area. The trail starts in the trees and breaks out above timberline about 2/3rds of the way up. Moderate grade all the way. Fantastic views but can be chilly even on hot summer days. A bit of stamina would be in order to do the deed after the hike up."
