A Weekend In Aspen

 

HIKE FROM ASPEN TO CRESTED BUTTE

PLUS -  PAONIA WINE TASTING TRIP 

 

Hiking from Aspen to  Crested Butte is a stunning eleven mile hike. The hike itself can be accomplished in around 6 - 9 hours depending on your fitness level and how many times you stop to take breaks to rest, eat, take photos, or just admire the beautiful scenery. 

DAY 1 | HIKE FROM ASPEN TO CRESTED BUTTE  

We will pick you up right at the Aspen Airport and get you settled into your accommodations as well as host a welcome dinner at the restaurant of your choice.

This experience can be guided or unguided depending on hiker’s personal preference, experience, and comfort level. 

 

Once you’ve completed the 10.2 miles (and 3000’ climb), Nomad Inc will have the shuttle arranged to pick you up (with snacks, pizza, beer or refreshments upon request).  

From the trail head our shuttle will take you into town or straight to your accommodations to relax. We arrange accommodations according to the guest preferences and we can suggest places to eat for dinner, book your spa treatments and make reservations wherever is requested. 

DAY 2 | PAONIA WINE TASTING  

The next day begins at your Crested Butte accommodations at 10am where we will pick you up. We will take the scenic Kebler Pass to the hamlet of Paonia. In Paonia, we will visit three to six vineyards and have lunch at a local eatery.  

After a much-deserved afternoon of relaxing while sipping some local Colorado wines, we will shuttle you back to Aspen in time for dinner. We have plenty of room in our van for gear and any vineyard goodies picked up along the way.
