Camaraderie. Conversation. Fresh Air & Exercise

Join us for an opportunity to meet new people while getting outdoors. Kids are welcome. Fido too on his/her leash where allowed. On Sundays we usually stick close to Denver with 2 hour hikes offering great Colorado scenery and views. You will sometimes get to see big horn sheep (like on the Quandary climb), hawks soaring overhead (like from dinosaur Ridge) , wildflowers in the spring, and songbirds in the forest. We usually stop off for lunch on the way home.

We have different hikes. Mostly, we do moderate hikes in the foothills with 300 to 600 feet elevation gain. Decent trail shoes or boots are recommended along with some extra clothing, a snack and some water.

When we have a larger group we usually split it into two groups going opposite ways.

Please assess each the outing based on your abilities, gear and physical conditioning. Same for the kids if they plan to come along. Join the group and I'll email you the hike details, directions to the park-n-ride we're using and directions to the trailhead each week so you can make your plans.
