Hikes can be scheduled 7 days a week depending on guide availability. Evenings are typically spectacular as the afternoon thunderstorms move out.


We Primarily offer weekday guided hikes as the weekend evenings tend to be extremely busy with Elk viewing.


During the Winter, we shift to snowshoe trips instead of guided hikes. We typically take off December from offering any trips.


We offer limited availability of sunset hikes due to fickle spring weather in the National Park.
