The Walter Tishma Way

Estes Park, Colorado.

As with many small businesses, we have faced many challenges in the last few years.  In 2022, after almost 20 years in business, I made several changes to the itinerary opting to give up a few of the “inn to inn” components and relying on the best trip ingredients.  We went with our three best lodges, our best and most consistant restaurants and added the new Cub Lake/Moraine Park hiking day which turned out to be a favorite.   It was the best itinerary I’ve ever offered.  I loved it.  I did it again in 2023 and it was even better as I wrapped my head around it better.  Let’s do it again in 2024!

“I thoroughly enjoyed the inn-to-inn Walter Tishma Way hiking trip. Each day starts with a great breakfast, a sack lunch for the trail, shuttle to the trailhead, a route guide and pointers about the trail and route to your next lodging. The hikes were just challenging enough to give a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day…” Client from Houston, TX

To book the Walter Tishma Way contact us with your preferred dates and let us see if we can accommodate you. Let us know the number of people and whether they are double or single occupancy.

If booking a double occupancy room let us know whether you prefer a room with one or two beds. Older lodges have some double beds if you’re booking a room with one bed.  If you’re tall, large or snore, you might want two beds.  Please let me know this at the BEGINNING before I start booking.  Seven Keys Lodge is an old historical lodge and will have some bathrooms down the hall in the lodge.  Allenspark Lodge might be the same.  This may be part of your “roughing it” adventure but don’t be deterred- these lodges are fun.

If you have any other questions concerning the trip, you can submit your questions here.

If you’re ready to book, please fill out our booking form.
