Want to hike and snowshoe the Denver-Boulder area mountains? Colorado Explorers is the Meetup group for your next outdoor adventure!

Explore wilderness trails, national parks, rolling foothills meadows, high alpine lakes or bag a 14er with this vibrant hiking Meetup group. Hone your photography skills or get in a good workout. Take your Boulder, Golden or Denver hiking experience to the next level.

This group includes a mix of casual, moderate and strenuous hikes and snowshoes in all sorts of weather conditions. Enjoy Colorado hiking, snowshoeing, photography and fitness at its best!

Now it's time to hike and snowshoe in Colorado's playground.

Whether you live in Lakewood or Longmont, Capitol Hill or Castle Rock, this group is for you. From Littleton to Louisville, Aurora to Arvada, you'll discover all sorts of people who love to explore the Rocky Mountains. Whether you are a weekend hiker or prefer to hit the trail head during the week, we'll have choices for you.

We try to maintain a decent yet enjoyable pace to accommodate photo stops, rest breaks, and "holy cow" views. We are not trying to race to the top, or get there by a certain time. We are hiking Colorado to enjoy the journey.

Our hikes may range anywhere from from 4 to 14 miles in length and elevation gains from 300 to 3000 feet. We visit gorgeous mountain lakes, high peaks and craggy foothills. Snowshoe trips bring us to places you never thought possible in the winter.

Contribute ideas. Join the fun!

We recognize there are many diverse hiking styles to fit your mood and/or ability. If you have suggestions for treks, please let us know.

You can look forward to occasional social gatherings before or after a hike or snowshoe. We might sample small town ales, or simply stop at a local dive with good grub. It's a great opportunity to get to know like-minded people. From Denver hikers to Boulder hikers and snowshoers along the Front Range... we are Colorado Explorers. Let's hike and snowshoe the Rockies!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
