What you'll do

Hike (snowshoe in winter) through history! I'll treat you and your friends to a moderate hike that features a colorful history of pioneers, famous 20th century musicians and a well preserved ghost mine! If it's winter, we'll bundle up Colorado-style and do it on snowshoes. The trailhead is less than an hour from Denver and only 30 minutes from Boulder. I estimate our time on the trail to be 2.5 hours. This hike is a good beginner level and accessible for most all people. We will reach a top elevation of 8,764 feet so oxygen will remain plentiful in this natural mountain environment. We will travel a total of 4.8 miles with a net up & down elevation gain of 365 feet. The average grade is only 3% with intermittent sections of steeper terrain. It's beautiful and we're going to have a lot of fun. This is beautiful in winter! I'll provide snowshoes and traction devices as well as hiking poles. Be sure to dress warmly! I'll send you a packing list. Stats: 4.8 miles 365 feet of up/down elevation gain Average grade 3% Max grade 11% steepness

Your hosts

I am native to Colorado and explore it's wonderful hidden gems all the time. My Co-Host Lisa is also a Colorado native. We met on a hiking trail and became fast friends. We both have a passion for everything Colorado and we can't wait to share all of our inside knowledge with you. I have worked in the travel industry as a private flight attendant, a wholesale tour ops specialist, tour guide & group travel coordinator. I plan and execute local and global excursions for larger groups, I teach map and compass navigation and I am certified in Wilderness First Aid. I spend my free time climbing Colorado's famed 14, 000 foot mountains and I also love technical canyoneering. If you want to see my adventures, check out Yeti Set Go BIG dot com. Expect to smile, laugh and make new friends when you join an adventure that I have planned.

Where you'll be

Discover the beauty of the Rocky Mountains that is right in the backyard of the Denver/Boulder metroplex. A well maintained trail will guides us through tales of pioneers and their struggles and accomplishments. We'll see and get close to historic places that hosted world famous people and hard working miners too. The entire journey is in the clean crisp mountain air amongst mature mountain forests and a brisk babbling creek. Expect fun too.
