Come join us as we explore Colorado (and Beyond) with others who enjoy Backpacking, Day Hiking and Camping.
Our main focus is on backpacking but we encourage members to post day hikes or camping trips. All backpacking skill levels are welcome and we encourage all to post trips from short and easy to longer and more challenging. We encourage members to become trip organizers and post trips they would like to go on - you could have the trip of the year ready to go - Contact the Group Organizer for how to do this.
Our backpacking trips will involve hiking a mile or much more from a trailhead to locations in the Colorado wilderness. These trips will require backpacks, tents, sleeping bags and other gear and food that you will be carrying on your back needed to keep you fed, warm and dry. We practice Leave No Trace principles to leave the wilderness as pristine (or better) than we found it. Please be prepared with all the gear you will need to enjoy (and survive) Mother Nature. Backpacking participants will need to be over 18 (Unless a family member is going) and pets may not be allowed on some of our backpacking trips, check the regulations for each particular trip. Please read the descriptions of each trip to note the experience level required for that trip.
Year round trips are welcome (we are one of the few groups that goes winter camping) if you can find the motivation.
Special Note: We are here to have a safe group to go into the wilderness with others that you can trust. We have one main rule - Respect! (failure to follow this one rule can get you banned) This is why we have so much fun as we always show respect for each others, the forest, the park, the others on the trail.. respect!
We hope you will join us in our exploration of Colorado. We always welcome more event organizers to plan and lead trips.
