Outdoor activities can be risky and you are responsible for your own gear and safety. Do you understand that you participate at your own risk, are responsible for your own safety, and release the organizers from liability?

NEW AND CURRENT MEMBERS: Front Range Hikers is currently on INACTIVE status as the main organizer is recovering from an injury. We hope to have the group back up and running in 2017.
This group is for hiking and exploring the many amazing and beautiful trails in the Front Range area. We primarily hike in the foothills of Loveland and Fort Collins during the week, and head up to Rocky Mountain National Park or the Poudre Canyon on the weekends. Occasionally we head over to the Brainard Lake Wilderness Area.
This is a hiking group comprised of people who hike a lot and it is NOT a beginner group. Most of the hikes we do are upwards of 8-12 miles and would be considered strenuous for those who are not actively hiking regularly. If you are looking for a beginner group or like to meander and go at a rather slow pace, you should reconsider joining this group. We say that not to scare folks away but rather to set expectations. If however you love to hike and are eager to hit the trails regularly, this is a group of friendly people with whom you will fit in perfectly!
