I am an expert when it comes to navigating the mountains. I have hiked for many years in various locations throughout the world. Some of the most extreme trails have been on were in Switzerland, Greece, France, and Colorado. I want to share with others the serene sport that has been a part of my life by tailoring each experience to each hikers abilities. I have hiked over 50 trails thoughout Colorado, all of which range in difficulty. It is my duty to ensure each person is comfortable during the entire trip while exploring what colorful Colorado has to offer.
Will provide snacks during the hike(fruit, and granola bars)
I suggest bringing your own water bottle. However I will provide one bottle per person.
Parking and entrance
DSLR camera. All pictures of you and your group will be sent via email.
St. Mary's Glacier: The hike up to St. Mary's Glacier ascends through the stunning Colorado forest and ends with a breathtaking panoramic views. This is one of the easier trails in Colorado(1.5 miles round-trip). Idaho Springs: The city has a population of 1,717 people and is a gold mining town founded in 1859 during the Gold Rush. It has natural geothermal caves and natural hotspring pools, which will be perfect for our muscles after the hike
In order to do this hike: 1)you should be in physical shape 2)Be able to walk atleast two miles 3) Have gone on a hike before *Note: Elevation may influence performance The geothermal caves are gender seperated and clothing optional.
