My husband and I have done many day hiking trips but had never backpacked before. Everything was well planned and thoughtful. The provided packing list was so helpful and all of the gear they provided was great quality. We were fortunate with great weather for an early December trip but the 15 degree sleeping bag was so helpful to stay warm on cold nights! Our guide Katie was WONDERFUL! She was a lot of fun and I felt completely safe under her guidance. The meals she prepared were really delicious and creative. She also knew the best spots for photos! This was such an amazing experience thanks to a great guide and a fun group. We are so happy that we booked through Discovery Trek! Cannot recommend them enough.

Katie was an amazing guide! Thought of every detail and question. Weather was amazing, views were perfect everywhere we hiked. Highly recommend this hike. Make sure you train for pack hiking, including both prolonged uphill and downhill, you’ll enjoy the experience even more, with less soreness.
