What we're about
We're geeks (and even non-geeks if you insist!) who enjoy hiking and want to explore the trails of Colorado and beyond. We hike or backpack generally every weekend; Hikes typically vary from 7 to 12 miles long and gain anywhere between a few hundred and few thousand feet of altitude so a reasonable fitness level is suggested (Feel free to challenge yourself though!). We plan social events normally once a week, usually between Tuesday and Thursday to allow those interested in the group and established members an opportunity to meet and catch-up with everyone.
Geeks Who Hike organizers are fellow hiking enthusiasts, not guides. We encourage all members to plan for hikes as if they are going solo as the best way to assure safety. Hiker's planning should including being of reasonable fitness for the event, carrying the needed water and food for the duration of a hike and wearing appropriate attire for the hikes conditions. Then to enjoy the day with friends. In the event of trouble we encourage each member to ask for assistance, we are here to help each other.
