What you'll do

We will start this hike early in the morning to take advantage of the cool air and avoid crowds. Led only by moonlight, we will hike near Chatauqua Park, but to a far less popular trail. After traversing and some low level climbing, we will sit above Boulder to watch the sunrise and take in the gorgeous views of the foothills.

My company offers adventures in Telluride, Denver, and Boulder, so If you'd like to save some money and support my business and it's mission to guide mental health outdoors, look up Cairn Outdoor Guides where you can easily book this activity or others like rock climbing, Nordic skiing, outdoor yoga, and trail running. We also offer a flex plan that makes getting outside even more affordable.

You can also contact me to discuss other hiking options if this hike isn't quite what you're looking for or have other questions. I recommend you review the "Things to Know" section of my website at www.cairnguides.com if you have questions about what to bring.

Other things to note
If you have pet allergies or any considerable medical conditions let me know ahead of time as this is intended to be a safe and dog friendly experience. Note that Parking is $5/vehicle unless your car is registered in Boulder County

Having hiked throughout Colorado for nearly 6 years now my goal is to show locals and visitors some of the incredible places that Colorado has to offer that require a local's knowledge and isn't something that you would find in a brochure.

Additionally, I've spent the majority of my life working with and researching various aspects of mental health, which make my company a big proponent for using exercise and the outdoors to benefit individual's mental and physical health.

Where you'll be

At Crown Rock, we'll be hiking along a short, but adventurous trail that requires a little more than the ability to follow a trail. This hike requires some "rock climbing", which is actually scrambling, and is considered moderate in difficulty. This is also a lesser known trail, even by locals, making it a more private and secluded experience.

Rated 4.95 out of 5 from 84 reviews.

This was such a wonderful experience. Everything was COVID safe which is really important to me. There was a last minute change of who my guide was but everything went super smooth and I enjoyed hiking just Lions Liar very much. The scenery was gorgeous, I got to see some beautiful mule deer, and the hike was challenging but doable. It was colder than expected so bring gloves!!! Lol 10/10 would recommend

What a hike! Jordan and Mac were there with us every step of the way. Great conversation and the best view on the mountain is what we got with this experience. We cannot thank him enough. Jordan is patient and knowledgeable about all things hiking!

My wife and I came to Colorado for our honeymoon and were looking to do some hiking that was first time hiking friendly. We didn't expect Jordan's sunrise hike to be so much fun and helpful for someone who had never hiked before. He was so personable and so trustworthy, especially when we first set out in the pitch black darkness and told us our eyes would adjust. We were skeptical but at no point did we feel we were over our heads with anything nor that we were rushed. He had great stories snd his dog Mac was a great addition to our hike (even if he was a bit of a show-off, getting ahead of all of us at every turn). I would recommend Jordan to anyone with an array of skills as the sight of Boulder at sunrise from thr final height he takes you is so beautiful.

I couldn't have asked for a better start to my first trip to Boulder! I'm not a morning person but it was a priceless experience that everyone should enjoy. The views were great and made new friends on the trip as well. Jordan was patient and very accommodating to our group! You will definitely regret it if you don't go!
