This program was exhilarating! Very challenging hikes up the mountains, but Ryan, Grant, and Dan were awesome leaders and made it a fantastic trip. So glad we went!


The trip to the 14,er's in Colorado was so much fun and challenging. Rafting down the Arkansas River, Climbing peaks in beauty and waterfalls, long conversations while walking with like minded and interesting people, a gorgeous town (Salida, Co.) to visit and a fine restaurant or two to eat and talk. It was wonderful, I highly recommend it to those who want a challenge and a feeling of accomplishment.


Hiking to the top of one of Colorado's 14ers was a challenge for me physically but I was able to do it because the program provided increasingly difficult hikes at higher altitudes each day all week to prepare my body for the challenge; also the leaders were supportive and encouraging with just the right touch. This is an outstanding program. Ryan Kirkpatrick is a highly experienced and talented leader.


Just hard enough, all the guests were friendly, guides genuinely warm and helpful, and surprisingly competent


This program was a challenging, active, fun program in the great outdoors with a warm/cool bed to sleep in and abundance of food! Our leaders were exemplary in every way. We were challenged to do more than we would have thought we could with encouragement, kindness and praise!


Great experience! The course was very rewarding and the instructors were interesting and inspiring. The selected hikes and mountains were both spectacular and challenging. I found that the Colorado 14ers hikes present a great resource and opportunity to experience high mountains and great trails. Though popular and well-utilized, the hikes present an opportunity for self-reflection and personal development. So many opportunities to grow! The program leaders provided good information on each hike, and ensured that participants were able to complete the routes to the best of their ability - often above the participants expectations! Hikers returned to the hotel each day exhausted but satisfied and elated.


Great program for those interested in being challenged. To enjoy it you need to be reasonably fit and prepared mentally and physically.


Wow! This was extreme adventure for the two of us. The elevation was challenging, to say the least, however we made it to the top of all 3 mountains. They just got easier and more satisfying as the week went along. Great leaders and interesting, intelligent and capable fellow participants. Highly recommended!


We attended this as a couple, and I was the non-hiking member. I liked how this program had a very challenging hike on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Then on Tuesday and Thursday the leaders took us on less strenuous activities. It was a pleasure to be able to join the group on a fabulous zip line adventure through forests, over creeks and near flowered paths. On another day we went on an educational stroll teaching us about the flora, fauna, and history of the area.


Outstanding program, itinerary, and staff!!! I had been looking forward to this trip for a long time. It more than met my expectations. I feel the staff truly helped and encouraged me to meet my goals of reaching hiking (and summiting) three 14,000+ foot peaks in Colorado. This was my first Road Scholar trip. I will always remember it fondly. I plan to do more!!


Fantastic program! The guides -- Ryan, Dan, and Ann Marie -- were highly qualified, welcoming, and resourceful. Their positive spirits were a major factor leading to the cohesiveness of our group. The variety and beauty of the hikes during the week was superb, and the acclimatization those hikes provided enabled our group to achieve 100% success in ascending Mt. Sherman on Friday. Highly recommended trip for anyone who enjoys the outdoors and is seeking a challenge. The hikes are a challenge, though, especially for someone who is not used to the altitude, so be sure to take your pre-trip physical preparation seriously!
