High Mountain Institute High Peaks Adventure



This wilderness instruction program begins with an extended backpacking trip in the mountains of central Colorado. While in the backcountry, campers devote two days to service work on trails on one of the state's 14,000-foot peaks. The group then returns to base camp for a day of rock climbing, another day of mountain biking on local trails and a session-concluding white-water rafting trip.
