Call 719-578-0935 for additional information.
St. Mary's Falls
Not too steep and not so busy, take the route less traveled. This trail starts on the Short Line Rail Road Grade and slowly climbs to the trail head at 8000′. A gentle start gives way to lush forest tucked along Little Fountain Creek. The babbling brook is a charismatic friend along the way that leads to the base of St. Mary’s Falls. More of a cascade than a fall, it is a worthy destination for sights, sounds and meditation.
Intermediate, 3.5 hours $79
Upgrade-Continue up the route another two miles past the falls and into Frosty Park where an AOW Jeep will pick you up. This is a great option for those who are looking for a little more adventure. Our experienced guides will bring you back to town via the historic Old Stage Road.
Intermediate, 4.5 hours
4-5hrs $149 per guest
Jones Park and Bear Creek Canyon
An exercise challenge at its most scenic. This trail follows Bear Creek, home to Colorado’s only native fish, (The Greenback Cutthroat). The trail is a steady climb from 6800′ to over 9000′ and 4.5 miles. Take a break at the top in a pretty meadow called Jones Park. The old cabin was the homestead that saved the Greenback Cutthroat Trout. (Ask your guide)
Advanced hike, 9 miles.
4-5hrs $99 per guest
A great adventure on Pikes Peak. This trail follows North Cheyenne Creek and crosses the stream…(you got it) seven times! On this three hour adventure you and your guide will enjoy a stroll up to 8500′ in elevation. The trail starts on a gentle railroad grade for about a mile, easing you into your high altitude adventure. The hike climaxes with a beautiful waterfall cascade and a class three scramble over classic Pikes Peak scree and returns via the same route. This trail is a local favorite.
Intermediate/advanced hike, 3-4 miles.
3hrs $69 per guest
Team building, corporate outings or a gathering of friends. Call it what you want, but your team qualifies for a group.

Various side routes along the way ensure your guests will get the level of adventure they need and all teams end up back at the finish line together. How can we do this?
