Það sem verður gert

On this interpretive geology hike we will walk 2.8 miles through the volcanic rocks of Golden's North Table Mountain, accompanied by an experienced geologist who will teach you all about the rocks and the geologic history of the Rocky Mountains. These rocks formed from lava flows that erupted out of a volcano over 60 million years ago! You will learn to identify rocks and minerals and see details in the rocks that would never be obvious to the untrained eye. The hike ends at a site where geodes with zeolite crystals can be viewed within the rocks! With an experienced geologist as your teacher and guide, your hike will be an entirely different experience than if you went to the park alone.
(Note: Park resources are protected. Geodes can be viewed, touched, and photographed, but collecting of geodes is not permitted.)
Other things to note
Please be prepared to be outdoors for several hours and wear weather-appropriate clothing.

Roxy is super awesome. She took time to not only talk about the bread and butter that is the crystals but the formation of mountains, landscapes, and even the algae on rocks. The magnifier is a super nice touch to really look at rocks and minerals up close and she provided hiking sticks which I don't know how I could have completed the muddy walk back without. And the views are breathtaking. Well worth the climb which can be a tad exhausting if you're not used to altitude or uphill hiking. Hope to visit again after the pandemic ends when her other tour is resumed to also do the red rocks tour with her ❤

I was in Roxana's first group since covid ended experiences. We wore masks while passing others on the trail and when we had stops along the way. While hiking we stayed 6ft. apart which was not problematic at all. Everything was still just as great as it would've been without masks, don't let this deter you from this experience!! We loved it and learned so much. The trail and gems are so beautiful and I would definitely recommend this. It would not have been the same without our lovely guide Roxana, she knows her stuff!

This felt more like a hike rather than a study of geology. 95% hike with a small field of geodes at the end. Rox is very knowledgeable, and she made the experience very interactive... however we didn’t see many exciting geodes.

This was definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Denver. Roxana was very knowledgable and made sure to cover the basics, so if you're not a geology expert, fret not!! Also, while the hike was a bit of work for someone like me who doesn't regularly exercise, it was more than manageable. What also made this special aside from Roxana were the people that you'll hopefully get to meet assuming other groups book for the same time.

Dr.Roxs is amazing! This was a very informative hike! Great amount of breaks to catch our breath, especially with being new to the altitude. The trail is great!

First Airbnb "experience" we've tried and definitely would recommend - easy to talk to and listen to, she's obviously an expert who enjoys sharing her knowledge & passion for geology with others - tour started and ended exactly on time, extremely interesting - we'll be checking out her other tours the next time we're in town!
