Fantastic Way to Explore the Colorado Wilderness

If you are looking for a way to truly experience the ruggest outback of Colorado, Mega Mountain Magic is the way to go. It begins with horseback riding tours to the top of the Colorado Rockies on U.S. Forest Service land, all the way up to 11,800 feet. There are day-long rides available, as well as two-day excursions. Guests are encouraged to bring along their cameras because the views are going to blow your mind.

Many of the rides features additional activities, and this is exactly the sort of thing children will love. The Breakfast Ride starts of with a delicious campfire breakfast of coffee, juice, eggs, sausage, and pancakes, and then takes riders through the countryside. Wagon rides are available for those too young to ride horseback. The Evening Weinie Roast is another ride that will delight children. Take horseback or wagon to the Mega Mountain camp where you and your fellow riders will enjoy campfire-roasted hot dogs, chips, sodas, and dessert. After dinner, everyone can enjoy sitting around the campfire roasting s'mores. Hour long rides, 2.5 hour rides, and half and full-day rides are also available. The overnight ride takes you up West Tennessee to the site of the old abandoned mine, and features great views of the Continental Divide. Riders are provided with a sack lunch during the trip up the mountain, there will be dinner served at the camp, and you will start day two with a delicious breakfast before heading back down the mountain. This is truly a great way to experience cowboy living, so if you are looking for a unique gift idea, or a special way to celebrate an upcoming event like a birthday or anniversary, book a trip like this. It is a once in a lifetime experience.

In addition to the horseback riding tours of the Rockies, Mega Mountain Magic offers guided fishing tours. You will explore the countryside, the mountain, and alpine lake territory where the lakes at 11,000 feet stay frozen until mid-June. Overnight accommodations are available in wall tents. Guests are invited to fish during the rides, but you must bring your own gear. Fly fishing tours are also available. This tour takes you on the Upper Eagle River, the South Platte River, and the Arkansas River including the Dream Stream. Private waters are available on the Arkansas River for an additional fee. Boat trips are available on the Antero, Spinney, and 11-Mile Reservoirs. Gear is supplied to anglers on these trips.

If you are looking to experience the true spirit of the old west, try one of the hunting tours offered by Mega Mountain. Trips are organized on protected land and certain areas require permits to hunt on. They have set up a camp just south of the town of Leadville, and it features rough, isolated land great for hunting large game. Small game hunts are also available.

Mega Mountain Magic has something for every outdoorsman, so if you are looking for a way to experience the Colorado outback in a unique way, choose one of their great adventure tours.
