Starting this June, the Denver Member Initiatives Committee (DMIC) is excited to offer a second round of 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 2019.  Members can sign up for any hike and do not have to sign up for the series.

The second round of 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 Sundays.


This program is currently full. If you would like to be placed on the wait list please complete the form below. If a spot opens up you will be contacted.
