We did the Denver valley hike with Erin on a beautiful, warm, sunny day! It was probably the highlight of our entire trip. Everything was well organized and the scenery was amazing. We will always remember this great hike!

I wouldn't call it an easy hike, probably moderate level, but they let you go at your own pace and it isn't too steep. Our group had all different ages and managed well.
