Trip: Nader's Pikes Peak Summit


My son Humza got to summit pikes peak within 72 hours of his arrival into Colorado Springs from Dallas as part of his 21st birthday celebration weekend with Bruce. To avoid any acclimatization risks up at higher altitudes and noticing the mismatch between my fitness and my son’s, Bruce advised against me accompanying my son. He preferred to make less revenue in favor of the birthday boy enjoying the hike at his own pace. Humza summited in less than 5 hours. Bruce prioritizes experience over $$.

Trip: Palmer Park Hiking Tour

Guide: Mindy S.

Coming from flat Florida, we chose Hike for Life as a way to learn about hiking safely for our month in Colorado. So far we have hiked in Palmer Park and learned about twisted trees. Mindy was our guide both times. She was responsive to our interests and our capabilities. She is also very knowledgeable and gave us a good introduction to safe hiking. We learned much about hiking and the environment. In addition, Mindy even went back to the park and found our keys after we realized we lost them!

We had an amazing Garden of the Gods hike with Jason. He told us historical stories, recalled facts about plants and the land, and made our hike enjoyable. We loved every second of our Colorado excursion!

Trip: Garden of the Gods Immersion Hike

Guide: Jason M.

Jason was an awesome guide and the communication pre/post event was outstanding. His knowledge of the area and details provided during the hike were great and he was even able to recommend other hikes in the area for future visits as well. We wouldn't hesitate to use and recommend Hike for Life to anyone... and the support they provide to the local community with a portion of the proceeds is a true bonus!

Trip: Catamount Open Space

Guide: Lauren W.

Amazing hike and fantastic guides Lauren and Jason. Both were extremely knowledgeable about the terrain, plants, and trees. Lauren helped find the right hike for my fitness level and time limitations. It was a quiet hike with minimal traffic - exactly what I was hoping for. Can’t wait for the next one. Hike for Life is an amazing group!

Trip: Palmer Park Hiking Tour

Guide: Elizabeth B.

Had a wonderful time hiking at Palmer Park. Elizabeth gave me a bit of history of the park, the springs and also cool info of Cheyenne Mountain and Pike's Peak. She's extremely knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Can't wait to go on another hike!
