What you'll do

Join us to see first-hand some of the most interesting twisted trees in the area. Your host will take you on a short hike and show you several unique trees and share some stories about them. Within the park we'll tailor the hike to your experience level and expectations. At the trail head we educate you on the Five Fundamentals of front country activities and then we're off! Your hike can be anywhere from one mile on a casual trail with less than 200 feet of elevation gain or, if you prefer something more adventurous, up to three miles--it is up to you! We'll make photo ops AND along the way we'll tell you about the general history of the area. After the hike we provide you with a summary of your experience that you can share on social media!

My family and I really enjoyed our Twisted Tree Hike with Mindy! It was a beautiful hike which was easily modified to our ability level, and we learned so much about the area that we would have never discovered on our own. I appreciate how Mindy engaged us in learning about the history of the trees, and was able to offer personalized recommendations for the rest of our trip based on our interests. Take this hike if you want to see fascinating trees and learn their stories from someone with lots of knowledge about the area!

So interesting to learn about the twisted trees or culturally modified trees. I would highly recommend this experience and having Jeff as your guide

This was an AWESOME experience! Bruce is a knowledgeable guide and took our group on a very interesting hike. I learned so much and enjoyed the forest setting and the spectacular view to Pikes Peak! The Ute Prayer Trees in Fox Run and their history gave the hike a super interesting fourth dimension of how the Natives used the land, their sacred ceremonies and traditions. I would highly recommend this hike to any local or traveller!
