What we're about

Golden Walks is a Chapter of Colorado-based Walk2Connect (http://www.Walk2Connect.com (http://www.walk2connect.com/)). We provide free community walking, hiking, and rambling trips in and around Golden, CO, with a focus on connections to others, to the places we live, and to ourselves.

Find information about all of our upcoming events right here in our Meetup group as well as on the Walk2Connect events calendar ( https://www.walk2connect.com/find_a_walk ), and follow us on Facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/Walk2Connect ), Instagram ( https://www.instagram.com/walk2connect/ ), and Twitter ( https://twitter.com/Walk2Connect) for photos, stories, related articles, and more.

Interested in leading conversational walks, hikes, or rambles in your own community or around Golden? Take our online training ( https://www.walk2connect.com/lead ) to become a Walking Movement Leader with Walk2Connect.

Check back often as new walks will be added throughout the year. Have a great idea for a walk? We'd love to hear from you!
