ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Is anyone arriving early for this program? I'm coming from sea level and may want to get there a day early to acclimate to the altitude.
Jeanie Apr 17, 2014 at 01:13 PM

I did the hiking trip last year and it was fabulous. I know you'll have a great time. And yes, coming a bit earlier to acclimate to the altitude is a very good idea.

I'm from Texas and am leaving about a week early to hike along the way. I will arrive in Estes Park a few days before the program and would love to meet other participants.
Jeanie Jul 24, 2013 at 10:32 PM

Hi Candy, I'm in Estes Park now at the Alpine Trail Ridge Inn. When will you be I. Estes Park?

Jeanie May 27, 2013 at 01:17 PM

Catherine -
Are you doing the trip again this year?
Catherine Tegarden May 29, 2013 at 05:36 AM

Jeanie, I am not I was looking at the one in Wyoming,

Jeanie May 16, 2013 at 08:03 PM

Hi Jane,

I'd be interested, but unfortunately I live in Maryland. Are you coming this way any time? Shenandoah National Park is a great place to hike. It's about an hour and a half from here.

Jane Mooney May 16, 2013 at 07:24 PM

Sorry stupid response didn't realize it was a year ago - well, anyone else interested?
Catherine Tegarden May 18, 2013 at 05:22 AM

Dear Jane I am so excited for you. I would love to talk anyway. It is a great trip. My friend and I went. We trained in different ways and she had problems with the hike. She is in better "shape" than I am, but I did a lot of climbing hills. I think you need that cardio up type workout. My phone # is (513) 259-4735

Jane Mooney May 16, 2013 at 07:23 PM

Hi, Michaeline,

I live near Boston and it would be great to go hiking with you before this. I am a novice hiker but am in good shape!

Jeanie May 13, 2013 at 04:07 PM

July 28, 2013 - I'm from the East Coast and have signed up for what appears to be a delightful adventure -anyone else going? (I hope)
Catherine Tegarden May 18, 2013 at 05:24 AM

It is a great trip. Get to Denver at least 2 days ahead though and get the high altitude adjustment. I would love to give you ideas on any thing. I loved the hike, but it is physical. Catherine Cincinnati 513 259-4735 Great leaders

How is everyone in getting ready? I am so excited to meet you soon. I wonder if my work out program is to be going OK. Still get a little skittish around cliffs. I wonder if we have to walk along cliffs??? I'll explain when I meet you. See you soon.
