Proximity to Denver also means proximity to the Rockies, and it's possible to seek out Sedalia vacation rentals that have good driving access to the Kenosha Mountains, Squaw Mountain, and even the piste-peppered lands of the Arapaho & Roosevelt National Forests to the north.

From plains to peaks in Sedalia

Like Denver, Sedalia sits at the point where the rolling American plains first crash upwards with the mighty Rocky Mountains. The result is a town that has plenty of awesome natural reserves right on its doorstep. They begin with the likes of the humble Staunton State Park just to the west, where boulder-studded ridges host fir forests and trails. That quickly turns into the vast swathes of the White River National Forest and the Arapaho & Roosevelt National Forests, where glacier-carved peaks form snow bowls, eagles patrol the skies, and glimmering alpine lakes hide under the ridges.
