Browns Canyon and Mt. Humboldt – July 16-19, 2020
“Water to Summit”
Hit the rapids, then check a 14er off your bucket list this summer, and experience this lifelong memory with your son.
(This trip is for ages 13+)
Mt. Humboldt offers beautiful scenery, great camping along the hike, an approachable class 2 peak, stunning views from the top, and the opportunity for you to appreciate God’s creation in a whole new way. Additionally, Brown’s Canyon is a wonderful place to drop a raft and experience rapids that only Colorado can deliver. You and your son will get to enjoy both on this trip.

This trip will involve the following:
- Day 1 - Leave Oklahoma, and drive to Browns Canyon near Salida, CO (~11 hours). Set up an overnight camp.
- Day 2 - Whitewater rafting trip down Browns Canyon via local rafting company, then drive to Mt. Humboldt trailhead and begin hike. Camp near South Colony lakes under the stars.
- Day 3 - Early morning fishing, then summit Mt. Humboldt and hike out. Drive to Trinidad and camp at Carpios Ridge that evening.
- Day 4 - Morning activities in camp, then drive home.
This trip will give the participants an opportunity to camp at three different unique locations over the 4 day period and enjoy being on the water one day, while on a summit the next.
This is a great opportunity for you and your son to prepare for an exciting but physically demanding weekend. There is not much better bonding, than against the physical and emotional struggle to accomplish something awesome together. Doing this as a community only adds to the depth of the experience.
