5-DAY ‘ULTIMATE ADVENTURE’ PACK TRIP
“A memorable wilderness journey through some of the most remote and spectacular mountains in North
America…with comfortable camps, world-class guides, and Colorado’s best mountain trained horses!”
Our flagship pack trip, this adventure is for fit, experienced or confident riders only. We cross 12,000 ft high passes, riding up to six or seven hours almost every day.
Some traveling is along rough, unmaintained trails that may require moving rock slides or chopping a fallen trees blocking passage. We sometimes cross valleys over old herder’s tracks above timberline where it is necessary to dismount and lead our horses over rugged terrain. We work together to make it the most rewarding and beautiful trip you can imagine. We believe strongly this trip is the best of its kind in the country. Definitely the staff favorite.
Our standard route crosses over the top of the Sangre de Cristo Range into the wilds of the Rio Grande National Forest. Traversing the very spine of mountains, we steer clear of roads and habitations until we descend on the last day.
The group works as a team. Everyone participates in saddling, care of horses and in setting-up & breaking-down camp. The staff cook, clean-up, and pack horses. This is an expedition, lightweight and mobile, utilizing all hands towards the ultimate goal of reaching the next pass or catching sight of the moving forest of elk. We work together to make it the most rewarding and beautiful trip you can imagine.
