Looking for a long, adventurous hike up a mountain peak? Join us for an inspiring climb to Hallett Peak, which rises over the Continental Divide at 12,718 feet. You’ll climb above Bear Lake and Emerald Lake and ascend Flattop Mountain to take in incredible views. The trail will take you through an ancient glacial landscape, including Tyndall Glacier and Glacier Gorge. After a rocky final ascent of Hallett Peak, you’ll be treated to a jaw-dropping view at the top.
One of the best ways to experience Rocky Mountain alpine lakes is on our Chasm Lake Day Hike. Trek through dense spruce-fir forests on your way to Chasm Lake, situated at the base of famous Longs Peak (14,259 feet). You’ll enjoy breathtaking views of The Diamond and Mount Lady Washington (13,281 feet). Learn about the geological history of Colorado’s mountain cirques from your expert guide.
Winter is one of the most beautiful seasons to visit the Rocky Mountains. Snowshoes and trekking poles are included as we take a snowshoe trek through an alpine wonderland. The adventure begins at Bear Lake at the base of Tyndall Gorge carved by Tyndall Glacier.
