Outdoor Recreation Trips

Hikes: Join us for guided hike.  We've selected easy locations, but these activities are still physically demanding!  Our hikes our rated either a 1 or a 2.  1= Easy (2-4miles round trip and/or less than 600 feet elevation gain.  Generally easy terraain with little elevation gain.)  2=Moderate (4-6 miles round trip and/or 700-1,500 feet elevation gain.  Mix of easy and harder terrain--rocky or short steep sections.)

Snowshoeing: Snowshoeing is the fastest growing winter activity. Why? Because if you can walk, you can snowshoe. Our ventures on snowshoes are generally up to four miles round trip, on fairly flat terrain. 

​Trips: Come explore the sights, sounds and tastes of Colorado by coming on a trip! From unique to fun and informative destinations and tasty restaurants, we have trip options for you.​
