Wat je gaat doen

We will meet at the "dino" lots (also known as the T-Rex Park & Ride) - a reasonable ride-share ride from Downtown Denver or Downtown Golden.

I can take 4 hikers in my Honda CRV. (more are welcome but will need their own transportation) I will first take you by the Buffalo Herd - hopefully we will catch a sighting in one of their favorite hangouts. Continuing on to a lovely locals favorite trail within 25 minutes of our meet spot, with stunning mountain views, wildlife, quiet trail reaching a lookout point, if you are able. In total, the hike will cover between 2-5 miles (1-2.5 hours hiking) depending on the groups ability and pace.

We will end with a scenic picnic that my friends and I like to call PBHH (petite bourgeoisie happy hour) - potentially a spread of wine, cheese, nuts, olives and some locally grown favorites. However, I can modify this to accommodate dietary preferences.

For morning/sunrise hikes, we will start with coffee, fruit and continental breakfast items as well as trail snacks.

This experience is excellent for visitors to Denver who are looking for easy access to a true mountain experience, or those that are unfamiliar with mountain weather patterns and navigation.

I have been a lifelong outdoor enthusiast, ultimately moving to Colorado to be closer to the mountains, after a solo journey through SE Asia in which I discovered a profound connection to the mountains in Laos. Since then, I have covered more than 9K miles of CO trail, in all corners of the state.

I have summited nearly 30 of Colorado's 14,000 foot peaks before moving on to the lesser traveled 13'rs. And spend a great deal of time studying the snow and exploring the backcountry in the winter, with an AAIREs Level 1 certification.

For me, there is something so profound about connecting with the natural world and I am thrilled to be able to bring a little bit of the great Colorado outdoors to you.

Waar je naartoe gaat

We'll start by visiting the Wild Buffalo herd - descendants of the last known herd purchased from Yellowstone in 1914. The Buffalo have their own grazing lands and while I can't guarantee we'll see them, we'll check their favorite hangouts.

Then we'll visit an amazing trail w/ views clear from Denver - Mt Evans & beyond. Wildlife galore, moderate level trails with variety of options. Trail surface is mostly packed trail with a few rocks.

Heather was super warm and friendly and delivered on finding the bison. She was very flexible to the pace we wanted to set and we never felt rushed and were free to take as much time as we wanted to enjoy the hike or simply stare at the bison. Plus she gave us macaroons!

Heather is an enormously friendly guest, answered a lot of questions and enjoyed to converse with the lovely and diverse group. At the end of the walk we had a nice little picnic. We sadly did not see the Bisons up close, they are kept in a fenced environment where general public is not allowed, but that did not stop me from having a great time!

What a fun experience! We were visiting Denver and decided a hike would be a great way to spend the day. It did not disappoint! Heather is awesome! We were paired up with another couple, and Heather showed us a wonderful time. She didn’t rush us, she was informative, cheerful, and so pleasant to chat with! The elevation isn’t something we weren’t used to, and she always made sure we were feeling okay. We saw bison, and some incredible views from the summit. We ended the day with a little picnic of delicious treats and great conversation! We highly recommend hiking with Heather!

This hike is a great authentic experience and if you want to see Denver area from a different perspective, I encourage you to do it! We saw bisons which was cool and the hike was interesting as we would stop to admire the landscape while chatting. Heather is an awesome guide and conversationalist and someone who truly wants to make you feel comfortable! I loved the snacks and a drink at the end and the whole hike felt like an amazing therapy which I needed living in a hectic city of NYC:) Thanks Heather !

Heather is a wonderful person, kind, respectful, openminded and funny. I loved spending time with her and we had a fantastic conversation during the hike. The hike itself was great, very peaceful, interesting and in a unique environment. I’ve never seen buffalos before, and we got to see an entire herd! That was priceless.

Had a blast with Heather! She was so kind and knew so much about the area we were hiking in. If I ever am in this area again, I am signing up for another experience that she offers.
