What you'll do

**Please note my contact info should Airbnb cancel and you still want to go. I'm happy to take you privately but you'll need to reach out to me. Ph: 303-564-4363

Enjoy a hard-earned chef-prepared feast at the top of a hidden Colorado Canyon.

Gregory Canyon is a gem. This spectacular hike is a strenuous workout limited to the physically fit. It's every bit as beautiful as the other better-known area hikes but because its trailhead is tucked away, it is a private oasis, even on a crazy summer or fall weekend day.

We'll meet at the Chautauqua Ranger's Station where I'll guide you further up the canyon to the trailhead.

Immediately, we'll begin our journey with a steep ascent, traversing a small creek, climbing a series of large rock boulders forming a natural rock staircase straight up the canyon.

After roughly a half mile climb we'll come to a ladder, bolted securely into rock to safely traverse the steepest portion of all. From this vantage point we can see back into the canyon with miles of views, and hike up a large grouping of boulders as our final climb and resting place.

Best yet, I'm a professional chef so we'll celebrate at the top with a custom prepared well-deserved feast!

PLANNED MENU:
Curried chicken salad, tart apple, lime, & roast pecans over fresh arugula
Mini chocolate pots de crème
Medjool Date and Macadamia Balls

*Vegetarian available
Other things to note
This hike is difficult and at altitude. It's a really fun challenge but can be tough, even for someone quite fit. 6.4 miles with 1490 feet altitude gain. Get ready to sweat!

I grew up in the heart of Alaska with a river for a playground and a boat for transportation. I'm still happiest and most at peace in the mountains, climbing up the edge of a mountain or basking in sunshine along the edge of a river, taking in the sounds and crisp, fresh air.
To say I'm an outdoor fanatic would be an understatement. I know every trail around, inside and out, and still revel in the spectacular beauty all within a quick drive's distance.

Where you'll be

If you come to Boulder, you'll hear about the ever-popular, Mt. Sanitas and Royal Arch trails. They are hard, fun and accessible, but also crowded. Not exactly they commune with nature I crave when getting away.

Gregory Canyon, on the other hand, is far less known and harder to find. It remains a hidden oasis, close to Boulder but tucked away. With an initial steep boulder climb, rope ladder and spectacular vistas, it honestly can't be beat

Rated 4.98 out of 5 from 107 reviews.

A perfect hike for me: strenuous but not overwhelming, beautiful views, and not crowded. The meal was delicious, and we ate it in a magical spot atop the canyon. Robin is a conscientious and warm guide, so easy to talk to, and clearly passionate about the outdoors. I loved it.

I would highly recommend this hike with robin. She knows her surroundings very well and keeps you informed throughout. This is a great hike for someone that likes to climb over rocks And scale the side of a mountain. I recommend really good hiking shoes and plenty of water. Also robin makes a very yummy lunch and sits you exactly on top of the mountain over looking beautiful scenery. I would and will be back and use robin again.

We couldn't ask for a better way to hike the Rocky Mountains! Robin is an excellent tour guide and an amazing person! My girlfriend and I had a lot of fun meeting new people, and of course, the food was out of this world! The hike is not easy, but it is also not difficult, and Robin makes sure you are able to do it. It was definitely a highlight of our trip to Denver, and we are hoping we can do it again sometime soon. Thank you, Robin!

Robin was a fantastic host! The food she made for the top of the hike was absolutely delicious. She also provided us with the perfect gear we needed to get up some slippery spots. Would definitely recommend!
