This was a great start to our vacation. The walk was easy and Jacob provided some interesting history, plants and markings to pay attention to, and overall shared great knowledge. He provided some good suggestions for the rest of our trip.

Good tour with Jacob. Did like the views of the river and fortunately (or unfortunately) didn't encounter any bears. But saw the marks of wild animals. Thank you

As a solo traveller, it was great to have Jacob as a guide and the other hikers as a group ! Jacob thru great storytelling and deep local knowledge really made the forest, flora and fauna comes alive with stories and biological insights! He also too us on trek that is still under the radar. We saw multiples traces of bear presence and an horde of elks. The hike for me wasn’t that sporty or too exhausting … but it did feel good to grab lunch and relax after the 3hr walk! I presume the hike is the accessible to a wider range of hiking enthusiasts!

This experience with Jacob was awesome! He has so much knowledge about nature and the mountains and was able to show & teach me a lot of cool things about wildlife tracking, the history of the area, interesting facts about different tree species, etc ... It was a perfect combination of hiking, beautiful views, and some education. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone in the area looking to go on an adventure into the mountains with an expert guide.

Great hike, great host, very nice experience getting to know the area and what to look out for or be mindful of. Jacob is very knowledgeable and shows you things you wouldn’t otherwise know they’re there. He was also kind enough to reschedule my booking to the next available moment because I couldn’t make my initial tour due to rental car pick up issues. Very much appreciated!
