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.

Unde vei fi

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

Robin is wonderful and was so much fun to hike with. The spot she picked was absolutely perfect. The food was delicious. You won't regret this experience.

The hike fun. Robin mentioned that it would be a tough hike, which it was. After a mile or so in, I was too out of shape to finish the hike. I did get to see a different and more secluded area of Boulder. During the hike, Robin waited for me to catch up a few times, which was really nice. If I am in better shape, I would come on this hike again.

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. Hiking Gregory Canyon was the highlight of our trip to Boulder. The views were incredibly beautiful. Robin is an unforgettable human being, we really enjoyed our time with her. We highly recommend this experience.
