What we're about

Welcome to Hikes and Hangouts! This is a broad interest group for young adults in Northern Colorado looking to make new friends and explore the awesomeness this area has to offer! Meetups range from Outdoor Adventures, Hiking, Camping, Backpacking, 14ers, Mountain Bike and Motorcycle Rides to Social Gatherings, Dining Out, Happy Hours, Brewery Tours and Hangouts. Something for everyone.

I plan several events per week as my schedule allows. We also have several events that re-occur on a regular basis as well. If you would like to plan your own event and let it be known to the group please feel free to contact me on here and I'll help you get it set up.

My "rules" for the group are simple. Please take the time to read the entire description of any event posted. Please only sign up if you are confident that you can make it to the event and can handle any physical requirements of the event. Please note that if you no-show, or cancel last minute without an explanation, you will be removed from group. I use the RSPV list to plan for reservations at restaurants, let establishments know how many of us to expect, and to plan carpools to and from hiking and other travel required events. Please be considerate of the planning that goes into an event and of everyone's time.

Looking forward to meeting you on our next adventure!
