Hike the Larches – September 22-27, 2019

This week-long adventure is based out of Nipika, with daily hikes into some of the amazing alpine above the resort.

Date: Sunday, September 22 – Friday, September 27, 2019

Description

If you’ve wanted to see the mountains in their fall splendor, Nipika is the perfect base camp for the adventure. Join our guides for panoramic views and golden needle hues—without the crowds of popular larch hikes. Retire to Nipika at the end of each day for relaxation, food for the soul, and a restful sleep in our log cabins.

Anyone who is reasonably fit for their age can enjoy this trip. You won’t be carrying a heavy pack, just what you need for the day. We will adjust pace and length of the day hikes to meet the interests and needs of the group.
