Enjoy A Custom Hike Through Colorado’s Front Range
A professional guide will match physical abilities with a suitable territory. Whatever a person’s level; either beginner, intermediate, or advanced, all paths cross through the kind of spectacular beauty that tends to make one want to just stand and stare at it.
Cameras are a good idea on hikes like these even though a photo hardly comes close to the real thing. Energy drinks and PowerBars are included, as well as a complimentary round-trip ride from the Denver area. Whether you live here, want to live here, or are just visiting, the hiking possibilities in the Denver area are limitless.
Rafting on Two of Colorado’s Most Popular Rivers
The choice here is between the Clear Creek or the Arkansas River; both promise a day of excitement and healthy fun on the water under the supervision of a qualified river guide. Clear Creek is a short, 30-minute drive from Denver, and offers the best chance of seeing local wildlife at the water’s edge.
The Arkansas River takes a little longer to reach from Denver, but when you ride that raft through Colorado’s famous Royal Gorge on the Arkansas, the extra time is not going to matter. Round-trip transportation to either river is available from Denver.
The Ultimate Zip Line Experience
Imagine flying through the beautiful trees, and over meadows in the Rocky Mountains! The scenery is more likely to take your breath than the excitement of the ride. In a half-hour drive from downtown Denver is three of Colorado’s longest zip line tracks, offering the ride of your life at 200 feet in the air, and speeds up to 50 mph.
Colorado zip lines are not like the average carnival ride good for only a few minutes. Good health is necessary for this experience since one can stay airborne for hours on a zip line, and the short hike from one zip to the next is through some beautiful, but wild country.
