Enjoy a hard-earned chef-prepared feast at the top of a hidden Colorado Canyon.

Gregory Canyon is a gem. This spectacular hike is a strenuous workout limited to the physically fit. It's every bit as beautiful as the other better-known area hikes but because its trailhead is tucked away, it is a private oasis, even on a crazy summer or fall weekend day.

We'll meet at the Chautauqua Ranger's Station where I'll guide you further up the canyon to the trailhead.

Immediately, we'll begin our journey with a steep ascent, traversing a small creek, climbing a series of large rock boulders forming a natural rock staircase straight up the canyon.

After roughly a half mile climb we'll come to a ladder, bolted securely into rock to safely traverse the steepest portion of all. From this vantage point we can see back into the canyon with miles of views, and hike up a large grouping of boulders as our final climb and resting place.

Best yet, I'm a professional chef so we'll celebrate at the top with a custom prepared well-deserved feast!

PLANNED MENU:
Curried chicken salad, tart apple, lime, & roast pecans over fresh arugula
Mini chocolate pots de crème
Medjool Date and Macadamia Balls

*Vegetarian available
Other things to note
This hike is difficult and at altitude. It's a really fun challenge but can be tough, even for someone quite fit. 6.4 miles with 1490 feet altitude gain. Get ready to sweat!

I grew up in the heart of Alaska with a river for a playground and a boat for transportation. I'm still happiest and most at peace in the mountains, climbing up the edge of a mountain or basking in sunshine along the edge of a river, taking in the sounds and crisp, fresh air.
To say I'm an outdoor fanatic would be an understatement. I know every trail around, inside and out, and still revel in the spectacular beauty all within a quick drive's distance.

Var ni kommer att vara

If you come to Boulder, you'll hear about the ever-popular, Mt. Sanitas and Royal Arch trails. They are hard, fun and accessible, but also crowded. Not exactly they commune with nature I crave when getting away.

Gregory Canyon, on the other hand, is far less known and harder to find. It remains a hidden oasis, close to Boulder but tucked away. With an initial steep boulder climb, rope ladder and spectacular vistas, it honestly can't be beat

Experience was fantastic, highly recommend it! Mainly because the host, Robin, made it awesome! She had a lot of interesting stories to tell as your hiking up which made the hike seem like nothing. She also knew all the best photo ops and she becomes your personal photographer, and a very good one too (evidence attached to this review). The meal and snacks she provided were personally made by her and they were delicious! I would recommend her for this and other experiences she offers. And on top of all this I got to meet new awesome people, and we became friends. overall, extremely happy!

Second trip with Robin. Could not recommend this enough. The trails she has picked out are phenomenal and secluded. It is great to be with an experienced hiker when you don't know the area well. She takes great photos and the food is really good too.

Great hike with Robin! Company was super and the hike and food were both delicious! We could’ve hiked longer, and it was a good, moderate hike. This was out first Airbnb experience and won’t be out last! Thanks, Robin! We had so much fun with you!

We were slightly worried that the climb would be too challenging, but Robin did a great job pacing the hike and provided delicious snacks and lunch.

We highly recommend this experience.

A perfect hike for me: strenuous but not overwhelming, beautiful views, and not crowded. The meal was delicious, and we ate it in a magical spot atop the canyon. Robin is a conscientious and warm guide, so easy to talk to, and clearly passionate about the outdoors. I loved it.

I would highly recommend this hike with robin. She knows her surroundings very well and keeps you informed throughout. This is a great hike for someone that likes to climb over rocks And scale the side of a mountain. I recommend really good hiking shoes and plenty of water. Also robin makes a very yummy lunch and sits you exactly on top of the mountain over looking beautiful scenery. I would and will be back and use robin again.
