Know Before You Go

Hiking

This is not a hiking tour but does include multiple stops and short walks. If you are looking for a hiking tour please see our Rocky Mountain National Park Hiking Tour or Hike the Rockies half-day hiking tour.

Dress in Layers

Weather in the Rockies is much colder than Denver please dress for temperatures in the mountains. We recommend layers, comfortable walking shoes, and a jacket year-round.

High Elevation Access

We are able to get up to Echo Lake year round on this tour but there are times in the winter when snow, wind or avalanche conditions may prohibit travel up to this high elevation.

Red Rocks Amphitheatre Access

Access into Red Rocks Amphitheatre on days when a show or concert is scheduled is dependent on the concert schedule and sound checks. We cannot guarantee access on these days. May through October is Red Rocks busiest concert season, we suggest taking the morning tour for the best chance to be able to walk into the amphitheater bowl before it closes for sound checks on concert days.

What to Bring

Jacket, (hat, and gloves for winter)
Camera
Refillable Water Bottle
Comfortable walking shoes (in the winter shoes to keep feet warm and dry)
Gratuity for your Guide

FAQs

What are the walking trails like? Do I have to go on the walks?

All walks are on trail surfaces, relatively level, and less than 1 mile each. Guests are encouraged but not required to take them. We provide micro-spikes for your shoes to give you traction on snowy surfaces when necessary

Tours are limited to 12 guests.
Pro tip: Book early. Our tours sell out fast!

Our Guests Say it Best

“We took the 1/2 day trip to Rockies and Echo Lake. The scenery was nice. But Will made the trip so much more enjoyable with factoids throughout the trip. 5 hours was just perfect. I loved experiencing the different temperature changes at the different elevations. We got to 11000+ ft in altitude. Learned a bit about the history of some of the gold mining and Colorado in general. Nothing strenuous during this trip.”
