Hike at the First Annual Step Strong, Save Our Lands Hike-A-Thon

 

Looking for a way to combine your love of hiking with taking action to save the environment?

Then join the Sierra Club Rocky Mountain Chapter on Saturday, September 15, for our first annual "Step Strong, Save Our Lands Hike-A-Thon."

We will be hiking the scenic trails of Roxborough State Park, which offers 4 levels of hiking experience for you to choose – from easy to challenging --with some spectacular views of red rock and sandstone formations along with diverse, dazzling flora and fauna (check out the photo below). Do one or several trails – there is truly something for everyone of any level of skill or interest.

Also, to make your day complete, you can compete for awesome prizes such as a night's stay at Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs with passes to Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, a stay at the beautiful Tiredhouse Bed & Breakfast in Salida, Patagonia jacket, zip-line adventure or outdoor gear. (Prizes will be awarded based on the amount of actual pledges received.) We will also be awarding multiple copies of hiking and snowshoe trail books by Sierra Club's own Alan Apt.  More prize details to come in the August edition of Peak and Prairie and on the website.
