I loved the program Hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park for Women. The leaders were excellent, the hiking was challenging but beautiful and fun and satisfying. Although the program is designated 'challenging', a range of paces were accommodated although everyone was able to tolerate the altitude, elevations and mileage. Met a lovely group of women. Nice accommodations, food at various restaurants in Estes Park was good.

If your heart desires to be outdoors hiking, seeing and touching God's vast creation, want to challenge yourself physically and spiritually, and being part of a group of professional, independent, and courageous women, than this program is right for you. Anita J.

Rocky Mountain National Park is spectacular. The autumn colors were breathtaking. The hiking was challenging but well worth the effort.

This was a superb hiking program! The hikes were challenging and the scenery was absolutely breathtaking. The program leaders, Jan and Addy, were encouraging, inspiring, and fun to be with. The hikes were planned out very well, with increasing elevation and difficulty, enabling many of us who were not accustomed to hiking at 12,000 feet to accomplish that lofty goal. The accomodations were very pleasant and the food was quite good. And I really enjoyed the camaraderie of the women-only program (note to Road Scholar: please consider providing more women-only hiking programs!). To fully enjoy this program you will definitely need a good cardio base to tackle the longer hikes at high altitude. And you'll need to be able to get up & head out in the very early morning hours ... but it's so worth it!

This was a great program . The leaders, Jan and Sylvia, made it outstanding. It was my first Road Scholar program and it has convinced me to sign up for additional programs. I loved the challenge of hiking every day with wonderful women in a beautiful landscape. Our leaders took care of all the details and made sure that we all were able to experience the program to our best capabilities.

This trip was an incredible journey for me! Jan, Sylvia and Jennifer were amazing, knowledgeable and simply fun to be with as we hiked the gorgeous Rocky Mountains. Our group of women were wonderful and I hope this is the beginning of long friendships with some of them. Strongly recommend that you are cardio fit for these hikes because they are at high elevations, strenuous at times but breathtaking beautiful! A must if you like an adventurous challenge! Would do this again in a heartbeat!

If you are up for a physical challenge in one of the most beautiful places on earth, this trip is for you. Jan, Sylvia and Jennifer were exceptional leaders, and the hikes were challenging, but not impossible. The leaders accommodated everyone’s ability level and made everyone feel comfortable. They put safety first at all times, and they set a positive tone at the very beginning that was reinforced all week. I came away invigorated and motivated. I learned from Jan “Attitude, not aptitude, determines altitude,” a great mantra for hiking, and life.

This was my first Road Scholar trip, and it was an excellent trip from start to finish. The trip leaders, Jan and Addy, were fantastic. The location and hikes were both beautiful and challenging. The fellow hikers were wonderful, which made the trip even better. Overall, it was well organized, the food selection was good and the location of the hotel was convenient to the park. I really enjoyed the all women aspect of the trip, and I wished Road Scholar offered more all women hiking trips. Also I noticed that when you select the Women only filter in the search screen, not all of the all women only trips show up. If only one or two weeks of a trip are women only, it does not appear in the search. Since I don't have a full catalog, it is hit or miss if I can find women only trips. It would be great if this could be fixed.

Outstanding leaders, participants & small group experience! Would enjoy any trip with Jan & Sylvia as leaders! Hiking was more than "moderately challenging" albeit excellent because our leaders were able to beautifully accommodate all ability levels without compromising the program goals. A fabulous experience!!!

This was just a fantastic trip. The fact that it was all women increased the camaraderie and fun of the group. The hiking was quite challenging and it is necessary to work on getting in shape for the trip. The scenery was amazing, the group leaders were excellent, and the whole trip was very well-organized.
