Additional Information

Summit Rocky Mountain National Park's only peak above 14,000 feet on this adventure!

Over 4 days, hike high into the Rocky Mountains, away from civilization to a place where the sounds of nature grow louder and the views more stunning with each mile. This trek will be a challenge, but with the guides at your side to cook up delicious backcountry meals and provide support the entire way, you’ll be prepared to summit the only 14er in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Although it is possible to summit Long’s Peak in one long and grueling day, it’s much better enjoyed on an overnight backpacking trip. Why not explore this beautiful alpine setting a little more? Spend time hiking to sparkling lakes and getting acclimated to the high elevation so that your fourteener ascent is safe and memorable. AOA’s route is a little used alternative to the common Long’s Peak summit route, making for the perfect 4-day exploration and ascent of this iconic peak.
