We are currently in the process of creating a new website.  We appreciate your interest in our mission to access trails with people who have physical disabilities.  Founder, Jim Ebert, recently passed away but his vision lives on in those willing to get Alpenglow Adventures trips started in places all over the world. 
We have some big plans for 2012 including trips to access trails in Patagonia as well as additional trips in the United States to the bottom of Grand Canyon National Park. 

Some of our accomplishments include: 

Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona
We are the very First in Grand Canyon National Park history to descend by trail 10 miles to the bottom of the Grand Canyon National Park to the Phantom Ranch with the very first person who was unable to walk on November 28, 2008. We descended 10 miles to the bottom by trail a second time to the Phantom Ranch with the second person who was unable to walk on August 14, 2009. These two individuals who could not walk, were the very first and the only documented individuals to have ever descended by trail to the bottom of the Grand Canyon National Park in its history.

Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa
We are the very first in the world to ascend to the highest Uhuru Summit of 19,340 foot Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa on December 8, 2008 with the very first person in the world with a mobility challenge who could not walk who needed assistance. We pushed and pulled them 26 miles and 13,340 feet to the highest Uhuru Summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in 3 1/2 days. We ascended the Marangu Route which is the safest and the only route on the mountain with a hut system.

Havasu And Mooney Falls, Arizona
With a team of 30 Camp America volunteers, we completed the first access to Havasu & Mooney Falls by trail with individuals who are unable to walk.  We completed the 10 mile hike in the Havasupai Indian Reservation.  This trip left a very powerful impact on everyone who participated.
