We highly recommend taking a guided tour with Trail Gems Geology Tours. Our family loved our geological tour through Garden of the Gods! We were all amazed with not only the beautiful views on our hike but the abundance of information and knowledge shared with us. We would have missed seeing the coolest things if we had walked the trail on our own. I think our favorite part was seeing the fossils. The mid-hike snacks were much appreciated too! Thank you again Eric for a fun, memorable morning during our vacation in Colorado! Wish we could have you in our back pocket on all of our hikes 🙂
At Trail Gems we believe everyone should have the chance to discover the beauty and rich geologic history on display throughout Colorado. Our experienced guides are very knowledgeable about the regional geology and are passionate educators. Book a trip with us and let us take care of you on an amazing geology adventure!
