Join a trained Certified Interpretive Guide, Wilderness First Responder, and trained Naturalist to discover some of the most beautiful hiking destinations in the Vail area that are only accessible via your two feet! Walking Mountains Guided Backcountry Hikes operate under special permits from the US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management that allow us to experience and learn from public lands like few other Eagle County hiking guide services can offer!

Most hikes will meet at Walking Mountains Science Center in Avon and take WalkingMountains vans to the trailhead. Start times may vary due to the needs of the hike, drive time, weather forecast, and other factors. In general, we aim to be below treeline before 1 pm to avoid the hazard of afternoon thunderstorms. Most hikes will return to Walking Mountains by 4 pm or earlier. Your guide will send a detailed email 1-2 days before the hike that outlines the itinerary, weather forecast, things to bring, and any special notes about the hike. Please feel free to reach out to Riley Gaines, Community Science and Hiking Coordinator, with any questions about Backcountry Hikes.
