What you'll do

Guests will meet at a meeting spot 20-25 mins away from downtown Denver. If you don't have a car you can Uber to this spot. We'll carpool from the meeting spot to the Glacier's trailhead, another 45 mins drive away. We'll hike about 30 mins each way (3/4 mile each way or 1.5 miles total) up a rocky and steep trail and will spend 20-30 mins enjoying the views of the mountains and lake from the bottom of the glacier. Some consider the hike easy, but those who do not exercise regularly and aren't used to the altitude might find it difficult.
I can fit 4 hikers in my car. If more than 4 hikers sign up you will need to provide your own transportation. Guests who provide their own transportation and help drive others are eligible for a $10 refund.

Where you'll be

We will visit a beautiful glacier and lake an hours drive away from Denver. The drive is easy, mostly along I-70 and the hike is fairly steep and rocky. The glacier is snowy/icy year round, so if you haven't seen snow or been to a glacier, this could be the experience for you!

Rated 4.94 out of 5 from 31 reviews.

Thank you so much, Robin! Not only is Robin a wonderful guide, she offered to drive, pointed out cool things along the way, AND she brought her camera and took some amazing photos! We went hiking at St. Mary's Glacier, a truly magical location. I loved it. 5/5.

Hiking with Robin was simply incredible! The hike was challenging but once we arrived it was totally worth it. When Robin says the temperature is 20-30 degrees lower than it is in Denver, to pack layers and bring water, DO IT. We will be back next time!

We didn't have a car and let Robin know ahead of time- she drove us and 2 other guests to the hiking location. Robin was super knowledgeable and was respectful to everyone's hiking level. The group was also kind enough to respectful of one another's hiking level. Great time!

Great tour! Definitely recommend. Great availability and beautiful views. Robin was very knowledgeable of the area that she took us to. She was also kind enough to snap a photo of my friend and me as we walked on the rocks across the lake. Book this trip!
