Wilderness Hiking

Keys Guide & Outfitting, LLC offers hiking trips in the canyons of the the Black Ridge Wilderness Area.  These remote desert canyons with sandstone arches, deep alcoves, native rock art and breathtaking views will leave you wishing you had planned another day or two in your vacation. 

Your trip begins with a scenic drive through the Colorado National Monument to the trailheads on the Black Ridge.  Lunches are packed at the trailhead prior to heading down into the canyons.  In addition to leading your group on the hike, our naturalist guides are great interpreters sharing their knowledge and stories about local flora, fauna and history.  Day hikers are returned to their hotels in the evening.  Multi day hiking trips return to a base tent camp each evening for a hearty meal and peaceful sleeping under big western skies. Full hot breakfasts with cowboy coffee and tea start the mornings.  Each of the hikes listed below are full day trips.  Put 2 or 3 of the day hikes together for your custom multi-day backcountry vacation.
