Tumbling River Ranch is surrounded by thousands of acres of Pike National Forest, which offers unparalleled hiking opportunities. Want to summit one of Colorado’s famous 14ers? There are two 14,000 ft. peaks practically in our back yard. Looking for stunning vistas above treeline? The views from the top of Guanella Pass Road can be endless and breathtaking. Rather stop and smell the roses? We can’t guarantee roses, but Colorado’s backcountry is home to one of the widest wildflower varieties on the planet. And don’t forget the fall! Once the wildflowers wilt and the weather gets crisp, treat yourself to a stroll under the golden foliage of high country aspen trees.
We offer guided hikes every day over the summer, ranging from early morning strolls to adrenaline-pumping, high country adventure, keeping you out on the trail for most of the day. If you’d rather explore on your own, you’re welcome to borrow one of our GPS units to find your own way to go searching for one of our local geocaches. Or, challenge yourself to the Tumbling River Flag Mountain hike (try and beat the record time, or just climb to the top and sign your name!). We also have maps and wildflower guides for your use.
Hiking at Tumbling River is not to be missed. See photos from our hiking offerings over at our Photo Gallery.
