Starting this May, 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 September 2018.  The program will begin in June 2018.  Members can sign up for any hike and do not have to sign up for the Series.

The Series will begin with easy Grade A hikes (0-4 miles/0-800 ft.) and progress to more difficult Grade B hikes (10-12 miles/2,000-2,500 ft.).  Hikes will occur on Tuesday and Saturday mornings. 


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
