Што ќе правите

While anyone can hike a trail in the National Park, there are many geologic features that the inexperienced eye cannot see. With a knowledgeable geology guide by your side who can tell you all about the geologic features in the rocks, how the landscape was formed, and the geologic history behind the rocky mountains, your hike is a completely different experience than if you just went to the park alone. We will study the rocks up close and learn to identify minerals and other features using a provided "hand lens" tool. We will also enjoy scenic views along the way! (Stats: Hike is 5.6 miles round trip with 900 ft of elevation gain and reaches an elevation of 10,000 ft. Trail is of moderate steepness, with some sections that are very rocky.)
Other things to note
Round-trip length: 3.5 miles (winter) or 5.6 miles (summer)
Elevation gain: 900 ft
National Park Entry Fee is not included.
Summer meeting place is a 30 minute drive into the park.

Каде ќе бидете

We will hike along a trail in Rocky Mountain National Park and study geologic features along the trail. Many of these features are not obvious to the untrained eye. As a geology guide, I can point out features such as metamorphic textures, striations in the rocks carved by glaciers, elongated mineral grains, and intrusions of younger rocks into the older rocks. Your hike experience will be completely different with a geology guide.

I thoroughly enjoyed the geology hike with Dr. Rox. She was very knowledgeable and had excellent communication skills explaining complex concepts with visual aids and plain language. She showed great concern for our health and well being which I especially appreciated since I was unaccustomed to hiking in the mountains and needed a little extra assistance. I highly recommend Dr. Rox's hike for anyone looking for a spectacular outdoor experience along with some intellectual stimulation.

Greatly enjoyed the geology hike with Dr Rox. When arranging the hike her communication was prompt, detailed and welcoming. Found her easily at the Park and Ride in the Park. The hike was fun and Dr Rox was great at setting a good pace for the group. The information she shared about the different types of rocks and how they formed was interesting and well presented. She also made sure we had time to enjoy all the natural beauty around us. I highly recommend taking a hike with Dr Rox!

This was an outstanding experience. Roxanna is an extraordinarily informed host for this adventure, with a PhD in Geology. She is an outstanding teacher - patient and very clear. The hike is gorgeous. Note that it is moderately difficult - 700 foot vertical elevation from the starting point, and final elevation of 10K. However, it should not be difficult if you are reasonably fit. No hand over hand rock climbing. Lots of opportunities for rest, education and being in awe of the transcendent setting. All in all, a memorable day!

Excellent experience, HIGHLY recommend. My wife and I had a great time with this activity. Once in a life time views. Dr. Rox was super friendly and fun. The hike is up in a beautiful mountain range that we would not have been able to find on our own. Very unique experience. We will definitely use Dr. Rox for other hikes when we return. We were a little worried about the altitude coming from sea level but she we did fine and she moved at the exact pace we needed.

This geology hike with Roxana was such a unique and interesting way to see a beautiful National Park. We learned a lot about what created the park, and stopped to discuss the origin and age of boulders along the trail, all while on a lovely hike to one of the lakes. We really enjoyed the whole experience, and Roxana is an expert in all geology topics. She really knows her schist! (Geology joke hehe)

The hike was wonderful. Most beautiful lake at the end of the hike. Learning about the unique aspects of the geology was a bonus. Very interesting.
