Squaw Pass Road, Evergreen, CO
What better way to celebrate summer than by spending your Friday evenings hiking the foothills instead of being stuck in some bar? We'll spend six Fridays (June-July) out in the foothills on short hikes that average around 5 miles round-trip. This hike is 3 miles round-trip with an elevation gain of just over 1000 feet. This hike is rated moderate because of the amount of elevation gain in such a short time. We will have several stops so that we can chat and get to know one another because it IS happy hour after all!
As always, I do not own a cell phone, so please contact me via Meetup prior to 1pm the day of the hike if you have any questions. Keep in mind that the hike begins at 5:30, so in order to attend the hike you need to arrive closer to 5pm to sign the waiver, go to the bathroom (Note: there are NO services at the trailhead) etc. If you are not ready to leave at 5:30, then you will not be included in the hike. All participants must sign a waiver in order to go on this hike. These hikes are for adults only with no dogs. Remember that it is summer so it will be hot and sunny; bring plenty of water, sunscreen and a hat. OR (because it's the late afternoon in summer) it will be raining/stormy so please bring appropriate rain gear just in case. You may also want to bring something to eat since we will be out hiking at dinnertime.

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.
