About your host

I have been hiking these mountains since I moved here 15 years ago. I particularly love the Indian Peaks Wilderness. (Hesse Trail, 4th of July Trail, Rainbow Lakes, etc) Nederland is the starting point for these World-Class hikes, a lot like the Rocky Mountain National Park, but less touristy. I will take you on the easiest hike to the Continental Divide. These are the high mountains that you can…

What we’ll do

I've been doing this hike -- "Arapahoe Pass" from 4th of July trailhead -- for 15 years. I can guide your group and keep you safe. I know some spectacular off the trail diversions that you won't find on your own. I can carry water, snacks, sunscreen and supplies for you.

What else you should know

We have many hikes to choose from depending on your desires.

What I’ll provide

You will tell me about food preferences, and I will pick out some scrumptious snacks to taste along the way.
Water, and if requested, other drinks.
This particular hike is a wild ½ hr drive from Nederland. We will go in my car, or in yours if you prefer.

What to bring

rain layer
Shoes: At least trail runners, preferably hiking shoes/boots

Where you'll be

We can discuss and possibly pick an easier (or harder) hike, but I like this one because it is the easiest/quickest to the continental divide. There are unlimited great hikes starting close to Nederland.

Guest safety

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 10 guests of all ages can attend. If you bring baby's you will need to carry them. With children they will need to be strong and determined to hike to arapahoe pass. (we can always choose and easier hike)

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
