PHOTOS: Fall colors are on fire throughout the Colorado mountains

We hope you got out for a hike, bike or liesurely jaunt this weekend, because the fall colors were stunning. If you haven’t hit the trail yet, you’ve still got a little time — and this year’s fall colors are particularly vibrant.

Not sure where to go for the best show? Try one of these leaf-peeping suggestions from an expert, have a bite at a restaurant with a great view or check out one of these 20 spectacular Colorado fall hikes.

And most importantly, be prepared for crowds in areas of real fall foliage glory, so remember your mask and try to hit the trail outside of peak times.

The peep is on. Colorado is covered in yellow (and some red) right now. We stopped at a pullout along the Peak to Peak Scenic Byway that overlooked the small town of Ward. Where are you peeping this weekend? 📸 @d_worth // @denverpost
