In the winter the high alpine road is closed and more time will be spent discovering the valley and its crystal clear alpine lakes.
Aaron was very knowledgeable about the park, its history and the surrounding area. The park is beautiful. I would have liked to do a little more hiking, but it was a pretty windy day when we got up high.

As you move between an array of vistas, your local guide will fill you in on Colorado’s diverse wildlife, as well as the urban culture that makes the state so unique. Afterwards, you'll head back down the mountain, filled with a sense of mountain serenity.
This experience was amazing. It was worth way more than what I paid for it. Our tour guide, Jed, was so experienced and knew a lot of the history of the mountains without boring us with unnecessary details. The scenery was beautiful and the amount of time we got to explore and walk around on our own was the best. There is a little town in Idaho Springs with a lot of small souvenir shops with everything you could think of. The van we were in was very comfortable, even with every seat filled. I would recommend this adventure to any and everyone, you will not be disappointed. I’m so glad I got to experience this and I will remember it forever!
