Frequently Asked Questions
How hard is the Peak Hike? Do you think I can do it?
It is best suited for experienced hikers and those that are in good physical condition. It is a challenging hike. You will feel the altitude if you live at a lower elevations. We’ve taken moderately experienced hikers on this hike and they loved the challenge and had a great time. The key is to be prepared for a 5-7 hour hike and stay hydrated and fueled.
Can we have a picnic lunch on our hike?
Yes! Just let the Activities Coordinators know and they’ll arrange it.
What if I don’t have hiking boots?
Sneakers are fine, and we have hiking shoes (Keen brand) you can borrow if you prefer.
Can we go by ourselves on a Medicine Bow Hike?
Yes, but we need to know your plan. We do recommend utilizing a guide for the Peak Hike.
