Itinerary

Day 1: Boulder-Winter Park
Boulder is the starting point for your adventure, where the group hikes along the base of the Flatirons, jagged rock formations that rise abruptly from the plains, and up Flagstaff Mountain for spectacular views of the city below. Then it's on to Winter Park, to warm up with an easy bike ride along the river.

Day 2: Winter Park
Enjoy a day of fat tire fun as you tackle the nationally acclaimed Winter Park Mountain Bike Trail System, with endless miles of designated trails. For the more intrepid, take your bike on a gondola ride up the ski hill and then hold on for the descent. Relax in the lodge's hot tubs at day's end.

Day 3: Colorado River
Today it's time to switch to paddle power as you hop into a raft or inflatable kayak for a journey through Lower Gore Canyon on the mighty Colorado River.

Day 4: Rocky Mountain National Park-Estes Park
Up early, you'll cross America's highest continuous roadway, Trail Ridge Road, with its stunning, top-of-the-world views. Hike through miniature wildflowers of the alpine tundra on the Old Ute Trail. The next two evenings are spent in the secluded Baldplate Inn outside Estes Park.

Day 5: Rocky Mountain National Park-Mary's Lake
An afternoon hike to pristine Gem Lake follows a morning of introductory rock climbing. Under the care of expert guides, you learn the basics and proceed to do some climbs on the rocky ridge above Mary's Lake.

Day 6: Indian Peaks Wilderness-Boulder
Trace a necklace of sapphire lakes and waterfalls within Indian Peaks Wilderness as you head to majestic Lake Isabelle at the foot of Arapahoe Glacier. The group then concludes its Rocky Mountain adventure back in beautiful Boulder.

Frequently Asked Questions

What weather conditions can I expect?
Summer is prime time in the mountains. You can expect low humidity with highs in the 70s and lows in the 40s and 50s. However, as in other mountainous regions, weather in the Rockies is very changeable - sunny skies can turn stormy in minutes, and afternoon thunderstorms are common.

How will the change in altitude affect me?
This is a difficult question to answer as altitude physiologically affects different people in different ways. The Rocky Mountains range from 5,000 to over 14,000-feet elevation, and have an extremely dry climate. Thus, to prevent altitude sickness we recommend that you always remain well hydrated, gradually expose yourself to higher elevations, exercise moderately until altitude acclimatized, eat a diet consisting of at least 70% carbohydrates beginning 1 to 2 days prior to ascent, and get plenty of rest. Furthermore, we suggest that you arrive at the gateway city at least 1 to 2 days prior to the first day of your trip.

How difficult is this trip?
This trip is ideal for those who feel comfortable being active 3-6 hours a day. The hikes range from 4 to 5 miles and the mountain bike rides can be up to 20 miles. The rock climbing is intended for those wanting to experience an introduction to the sport.
