Folks we are having entirely too many of both of these, especially drop outs. I ask that you not sign up for a hike because you 'might want to go'. We have so many people who want to go now that 'maybe' is no longer an option. Please only sign up for a hike if you fully intend to go on the hike. Dropping out at the last minute which a lot of people are doing is disrespectful to the amount of time AND MONEY -it costs me $14/month to run the web site- I put into running the group. It's also unfair to the other members who look at a hike and don't sign up because it's full with 10 on the waiting list. Then 20 of those signed up back out on the last day. Please take signing up more seriously.

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. We usually stick fairly close to Denver with 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. We do from easy to moderate hikes in the foothills with 300 to 600 feet elevation gain to more challenging hikes higher up in the mountains. 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 We'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.
