We will start this hike later in the evening and take a leisurely stroll through lush forests and walk past multiple wildflowers. After a while we will descend a little off trail. This descent allows you to find a comfortable spot that gives you the best view on the trail to watch the sunset. This trail offers the opportunity to see wildlife, mountain views, and will end just short of the end of the trail to provide optimal views for when the sunsets. If you'd like to save some money and support a local company's mission in helping guide mental health outdoors, book through my company, Cairn Outdoor Guides.

We will hike along an easy trail located less than 10 minutes outside of Boulder that will allow us to take in epic mountain views. After walking along the trees and wildflowers, we will sit facing west to see the sun set behind the Indian Peaks Wilderness and take in the gorgeous views of mountains and wide open spaces.
After hiking throughout CO for many years, I started my own outdoor guide company, Cairn Outdoor Guides. We specialize in crafting adventures for people based on their interest and abilities to make the most out of their outdoor adventures in hopes they'll keep engaging in them in the future. Having hiked throughout Colorado for nearly 6 years now my goal is to show locals and visitors some of the incredible places that Colorado has to offer that require a local's knowledge and isn't something that you would find in a brochure. Additionally, I've spent the majority of my life working with and researching various aspects of mental health, which make my company a big proponent for using exercise and the outdoors to benefit individual's mental and physical health.
Along Tenderfoot Trail, we'll be hiking along a short and relaxing trail that is a great way to get gorgeous mountain views without having to strain your legs or lungs. This also is a great way to wind down for the day by following a leisurely trail can be enjoyed at all times of day, but is optimal for sunsets.
Guests should be prepared to hike across rocky terrain throughout the trail. It's recommended to have athletic footwear and dress warm as it gets cool relatively quickly once the sun goes down. I also like to bring my dog, Mac, whenever possible, so please let me know if you have dog allergies.
