Colorado Scenic Tour featured hikes are relatively short, easy, and well-marked, so you can go on them self-guided with a high degree of confidence.  This arrangement means our drivers can stay behind to keep an eye on any possessions you may want to leave in the vehicle, and be available for early returns or non-hikers in your group.

However, if you are more comfortable with a locked vehicle than an unescorted hike, we will accompany you on any of the trails – and can add to the experience with our general knowledge.

For a whole new level of value for your trip, consider adding a professional guide.  We recommend Peter McCarville for several of our tours in his neighborhood, especially:

#3 Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park
#4 Lost Lake – Gunnison National Forest
#5 Maroon Bells Recreation Area
#6 Colorado National Monument
#9 Hanging Lake – Glenwood Canyon
