People just love to hike, and in Colorado what an great place to do it in. From fourteen thousand foot peaks to the beautiful hikes around Rocky Mountain National Park, to the Great Sand Dunes what more could you ask for?
The hikes we do are great because we do all kinds of different ones in different seasons. Climbing 14'ers in the winter, summiting peaks during the fall, and see the canyons around Moab, makes these trips great for everyone.
What Happens on the Trip?
Trips are varied, many of the 14'er trips happen alongside other trips such as sanddunes. Trips can be a single day, or a full weekend, warm weather or blizzard, we do it all.
Climbing 14'ers requires some physical stamina and also you should pack accordingly to the season. Winter trips require more clothing layers, while warm weather needs a lot of water.
Hiking gives you the chance to see the mountains from a different perspective and is great for all types of outdoor enthusiasts.
Good hikes are all over Colorado, looking for something more subtle check-out Rocky Mountain National Park. Fun and easier 14'ers are Bierstadt and Quandry Peaks.
The Canyonlands and Arches National Park in Utah provide the most beautiful sites.
Ready to go out, make sure you check out a guide book from the Penrose Library before venturing. During winter make sure you have adequate avalanche knowledge before the trip.
