*** Membership to NCA is continually open. Please read all of the details below before applying for a membership. Although we have members ranging in age from 20-70, our group primarily consists of people in their 40's and 50's, but we absolutely welcome anyone into the group that loves the great outdoors.

2 Simple steps to become a member:

1) Membership to NCA requires that you attend an event prior to becoming a member, per the approval of the event Organizer based on your fitness level and the level of difficulty of the event. Please request a membership by clicking the 'Join Us' link at the top of the page to request a membership and we will contact you (NOTE: When you request a membership you MUST submit a clearly identifiable photo of yourself (only you can be in the photo - no one else) with no hat or sunglasses. Any requests that do not meet this requirement will be rejected. This is for security reasons and to maintain the professionalism of the group).

2) Look over the list of our upcoming events at the bottom of this webpage and see what might be best suited to your level of conditioning. Let us know what appeals to you and we will go from there.

The Organizer and Assistant Organizers are our leaders and serve as 'sponsors' for potential new members and will introduce you to other members of the group and explain what our group is all about.

Northern Colorado Adventurers maintains membership levels that provide a good balance of members to leaders for each event, emphasizing quality over quantity.

Northern Colorado Adventurers

"Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it" -- Andy Rooney

Please join us for the next adventure - it could be hiking, snowshoeing, a full moon hike, rafting, a hut trip, a camping trip, or maybe an evening of indoor rock climbing.


This group is for hikers and adventurers of all abilities, from Beginner to Advanced, and for all ages from 21-70. We will try our best to provide a wide variety of hikes to accommodate all abilities. Although a majority of our hikes are in Rocky Mountain National Park and in the Poudre Canyon where there are hundreds of trails, we do try and schedule several hikes up Colorado's 14'ers during the summer months. We welcome outdoor adventurers from all the surrounding areas including Loveland, Estes Park, Fort Collins, Longmont, Cheyenne, and Denver.

The Northern Colorado Adventurers activities may involve certain risks inherent with the activities that we do such as hiking, snowshoeing, rock climbing, rafting, canoeing and other adventures. You must post a clearly identifiable photo of yourself to be accepted as a member in order for us to know who you are since we almost always carpool. All membership is subject to verification over the phone or in person at one of the events.

One of the intentions of this group is to have members that are active, keep the size of the meetup events at a reasonable number based on the number of organizers leading each event, and to develop friendships and camaraderie. In order to accomplish this and make it effective, all members are required to attend at least one event every 6 months. This helps the organizers keep familiar with the needs of the members and encourages everyone to be active. All members are encouraged to suggest events to the organizers in order to generate new ideas and continue to allow us to explore new adventures.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
