18 Places for Epic Outdoor Adventure Across Colorado

Wherever your next Colorado adventure takes you, let Maverik - Adventure’s First Stop fuel the journey.

The Centennial State is an outdoorsy dream, with hiking, mountain-biking, skiing, kayaking, birding and more around every corner. Thrill-seekers who venture here for a taste of high-altitude action are going to need a set of wheels and, of course, enough fuel and snacks to power them onto their next destination—that’s where Maverik - Adventure’s First Stop comes in. 

This nearly century-old convenience store brand serves the Intermountain West and beyond, from the New Mexico deserts to the Washington rainforests to the Great Plains of South Dakota, fueling cars, trucks, and travelers wherever they’re headed. And with over two dozen Maverik locations across Colorado alone, you’ll come to treasure their BonFire™ foods—made fresh daily—along with great deals on other drinks and snacks that will nourish you from snow-capped peaks to lush river valleys and everywhere in between (and keep an eye out for 80 more locations as Maverik rebrands recently acquired Kum & Go locations in 2024).

Family-owned and operated, you’ll enjoy Maverik’s incredible service and award-winning clean restrooms in a safe stop, while you save on every adventure through its Adventure Club loyalty program. Sign up using Maverik’s mobile app for perks, prizes, freebies, and more.

The list below is just an introduction to the endless wonders of Colorado. From crystal clear lakes to mineral hot springs, out-of-this-world rock formations to abandoned gold mines, waterfalls to dormant volcanoes, there’s something in Colorado for every kind of explorer. And when it comes time to re-fuel, there’ll be a Maverik there waiting for you.
