You'll enjoy more one-on-one time with the guide/instructor, more flexibility throughout the session, and a more personal experience for everyone who joins you. Price covers registration and technical gear for up to 4 people. On this gorge-eous hike through Glacier Gorge to Mills Lake, we'll explore this iconic, rocky landscape while keeping an eye out for the critters that call this area home. This glacially fed lake is surrounded on all sides by jagged mountains, with stunning views of the iconic Longs Peak. Along the way, we'll share some hiking tips and offer insight into the region's history and ecosystem. This hike is perfect for those with a bit of prior hiking experience, as you'll need to feel comfortable walking on uneven terrain at high elevations for about 7 miles. We love this hike, and are pretty sure you will too!
