This is a moderate but steep hike to Boulder’s Royal Arch, a natural sandstone rock formation in Boulder’s Open Space and Mountain Parks.
Description: Boulder, Colorado, hiking at its best! This moderate hiking trail ascends steeply to one of our ‘hidden Boulder gems’. You’ll see raptors soaring above the evergreen forest, and get a close-up view of the Third Flatiron, a famous 1000’ sandstone rock formation nearby. The ascent will take you through a 50-foot sandstone arch with expansive views of Boulder and the plains 1500’ below. This hike is a good introduction to the mountain ascents right out of Boulder and is perfect for anyone who likes working toward a goal. Your guide will set an appropriate pace for your group.
Itinerary: We depart from and return to your hotel or a central meeting spot. Our short trip to the trailhead keeps non-hiking travel time to a minimum. During the drive, we’ll cover safety and hiking considerations, and local natural history. After arriving at the trailhead, we begin a trail ascent to Boulder’s Royal Arch which includes 1000’ of elevation gain. At the completion, we’ll rejoice in your success and our memorable experience together.
Included in our rates: The services of a professional hiking guide, round-trip transportation from Boulder to the trailhead, snacks and water, education about local and natural history, group medical kit, and contingency and emergency support.
Not included in our rates: Gratuity for your guide; while the amount is at your discretion, the recommended gratuity is 20%. Denver hotel pick-up is an extra $100 per group.
Note: This hike can be combined with other trails in the area, a half-day rock climb, or a half-day mountain bike tour. Let us set up a fun multi-sport day for your group!
Difficulty Description: Moderate hike: Suitable for all physically fit people on a well-maintained trail. Portions of this trail, however, are steep and can be slippery.
