Hike Through History
Trek through history!
We'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.
There will be plenty of time after the hike if you'd like us to show you one of the small nearby mountain towns for food and beverages.
