Fantastic experience!
Aug 2019 • Solo
I enjoyed two hikes with guides from Hike For Life. My warm up was with Megan who gave me an introduction to the Colorado Springs area and Palmers Park. Next day, Bruce took me on the Devils Playground route toward the summit of Pikes Peak.
Both were fantastic guides.
Bruce went above and beyond in every respect. Communication pre-hike was comprehensive and responsive. I thoroughly enjoyed Bruce’s company on the day and even after we parted, he continued to provide advice via email as I attempted other hikes in the state.
I cannot say enough good things about Bruce and Hike For Hike, and thoroughly recommend them to everyone!

Pikes Peak Summit
Jun 2019 • Solo
I always had a goal to hike Pikes Peak and found this organization perfect for helping me reach my goal. I live in Houston so my biggest concern was hiking at a higher elevation, not getting lost, and just to have a safe, enjoyable experience. Their communication with potential hikers is excellent. You will be provided an equipment gear list to help you prepare for your hike. On the day of the hike, your guide will have a GPS tracker on them and you can send text/email updates to family and friends of your whereabouts just in case your phone doesn’t work. I learned some new hiking terms and things about Pikes Peak which also made it educational. It was an awesome experience I’ll never forget and I highly recommend them.
