TV Backcountry Trekking: Colorado State Forest State Park

Find your outdoor potential!  On this trip you’ll hike along the Medicine Bow Range, summit peaks, and view fields of wildflowers.  Along the way you and your team will learn the backpacking skills, leadership, and teamwork needed to successfully trek in the backcountry. 

On Day 1 we'll meet at the American Mountaineering Center for introductions and final preparations for our trek.  Then we'll load up the van and hit the road!  We'll spend the rest of the week treking in State Forest State Park, near Walden, CO.  On Day 5 we return to the American Mountaineering Center in time for parents to pick up youth in the afternoon.

Ages: 14-18 years

Maximum 10 participants.

Includes transportation, meals, backcountry permits, instruction, and any necessary gear.

Confirmation packets with a detailed itinerary, recommended packing list, health form, and liability release forms will be mailed prior to course.
