Oldman Mountain & Gem Lake (Half Day)

$139 per person (minimum 2 people) or $249 for one person

The Estes Valley is gifted with access to world-class trails right out of our front door! Our half-day hikes are a great option for families and anyone who doesn’t want to spend a whole day hiking in the mountains. We have dozens of options we can choose from but we have put our two favorites below. Both of these are right in town and can start whenever you like!

  • Oldman Mountain (1.8mi RT with 500’ elevation gain): This is one of our best social distancing adventures. We begin on private property that we own and spend a few hours following easy trails and a few short scrambles on rocks to the summit of Oldman Mountain. This is a beautiful spot which overlooks downtown Estes Park and is a great option for the whole family. It is considered one of the most important Native American holy sites in the country, and has been used as a right of passage site for thousands of years, come see why!
  • Gem Lake (3mi RT with 1,000’ gain): Gem Lake is a super-classic hike which wonders through rock canyons and formations on wonderful trails along the East End of Lumpy Ridge in RMNP to a beautiful small lake. Amazing views of Estes Park and RMNP abound.
