Currently Wild Peaks is settling in other valleys, and looking to partner with transportation options this summer season to get your students from the city to the trailhead that much easier.

Stay tuned!

Locations for day programs will change by the week. All programs in Gunnison Valley will be within 1mi of trailheads, and are subject to change with weather conditions as well. We update families booked with us in advance where meet-ups and day programs take place, especially when summer storms roll in. Thanks for trusting us!

Packing List

Conditions change quickly out on the trail, so Lex will always offer an update prior to programming for where to meet, what to pack, and what to expect. But below is a general idea of what Wild Peaks hopes you can bring to have a good time outside.

Keep in mind, if you need support getting supplies, please reach out! We're happy to help!

Food & Water

At least 16oz of water - we're moving a lot out there!


And with food, consider a hearty lunch, some snacks, and preferably something to also help clean up/pack up crumbs to pack it all out.

A typical school-sized backpack should do the trick. We're not doing any crazy overnighters... yet.

With clothes, consider layering. Cotton is breathable, but can be cold when wet. Bring a rain shell! Wool is a game-changer. Extra socks, always nice.


Close-toed shoes please, unless we have a swimming day.

Fun Stuff

We're doing all sorts of things with WP! But the biggest thing, is your student needs a journal (and pen).

We love when students pack film/disposable/polaroid cameras to capture special moments.

No glitter. Seriously.
