THE HIKING SEASON
Monday, July 6, 2020-Thursday, September 24, 2020.
Talus Lodge is a full service, back-to-the-basic wilderness lodge. The lodge is perched in the high alpine, nestled amongst the larch trees, surrounded by turquoise lakes, wildflowers galore and soaring peaks. Yodel inducing guided hiking offered daily for the well marinated and freshly hatched. Talus is wild, queen of the micro-terrain and the moss boss of the Rockies. There are no marked and few established trails. Don’t expect a fluffed and buffed trail network or hands in the pocket walking. The hiking is challenging and soul food for those seeking wild space and connecting with their inner mountain goat.
We typically have 10-14 guests at Talus and our hiking guiding program is led by an ACMG hiking guide. All level of hikers are welcome. Guided hikes range from 5 kilometers to 20 kilometers. Elevation gain ranges are from 300-1000 meters. The guiding program is determined each morning based on weather, conditions and the groups ambitions. The hikes often set off in the same directions and there is often a group that goes longer, farther and higher. The other group might have a nap in a meadow after lunch with turn around points for folks who want to stay closer to home. The guiding program caters to the average level of the hiker in each group. Please keep in mind that we prioritize the groups needs and safety over individual aspirations.
Our hiking terrain includes meadows, high plateau walking and, if the conditions permit, ridge walking.
