Starting this April, the Denver Member Initiatives Committee (DMIC) is excited to offer the Ascending Hikes series.  This program is geared towards new members and individuals seeking to gradually increase their fitness and hiking difficulty, with the goal of reaching the summit of a Colorado 14er in July 2019.  Members can sign up for any hike and do not have to sign up for the series.

The series will begin with a classification of Easy A hikes ( up to 8 miles round trip and/or 1200 ft. elevation gain) and progress to a classification of Difficult B hikes (up to 12 miles round trip and/or 2500 ft. elevation gain).  Hikes will occur on Tuesday and Saturday


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
