Colorado Hiking Adventures
Hikes for All Abilities
Take a break from boating and enjoy a Colorado hiking adventure. AVA has information on hikes for all ability levels. Test your limits and attempt to summit one of Colorado majestic “Fourteeners” or take a casual stroll through an alpine meadow of wildflowers. A family hike is sure to be a memorable experience, and it’s all conveniently accessible from our Granite Outpost.
Our family went on the Pine Creek/Numbers trip last week. Our guide, John, was great. We had a super time! Even on the challenging rapids we felt that John and the other guides always had safety precautions in place. We’ll be back again.—
Not ready to tackle a 14er? From the AVA Outpost, you can access The Colorado Trail using a moderate path that takes you by abandoned miners’ cabins. The length of the hike is up to you. AVA is located in the heart of the highest peaks in Colorado. The Sawatch Range has the most “fourteeners” (14,000-foot peaks) in a row in Colorado with fifteen in its range. It also boasts four of the five highest peaks in Colorado. The Sawatch Range’s 14,000-foot peaks offer hikers amazing alpine challenges in the Rocky Mountains. Climbing a fourteener has become popular and the challenge of climbing a fourteener will capture you. Standing on top of a 14,000-foot mountain, looking as far as the eye can see is an accomplishment never to be forgotten. An adventure is waiting for you in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains!
AVA is excited to help outfit you for your journey to the top of the mountain. We can offer lodging, advice, maps and gear for your trip.
