It was AWESOME! Debbie our guide made the experience memorable. We booked Explore a Simpler Time, but roads to the area were closed due to repairs. Debbie gave us other options that we could do. We selected a trek that was similar in difficulty. It was beautiful and Debbie was incredibly knowledgeable about the area and personable. By the end, it was like taking a hike with a good friend.The sights were gorgeous and we actually got to see a bear and her two cubs. I would definitely recommend this group.

Very wonderful hike! Matt our guide was so full of knowledge about the mountains. He was laid back and kept our pace at one at which we could see many things -- wild flowers, animals, plants. It was fun looking for some of the live items he had showed us. Views were amazing! I would highly recommend this tour.
