Intro to hiking safety course


From Hiking Beginner to Summiting a 14er


The Colorado Mountain Club's Ascending Hike Series is perfect for anyone that wants to meet new friends, explore more of Colorado's hiking trails, and summit their first 14er!

Hikes start off easy and gradually progress in length and difficulty so you're ready to tackle a 14er by the end of the summer. You'll get stronger, increase your stamina, and maybe even shed a few pounds!

For the summer of 2019, we will have two sessions of the Ascending Hike Series. You can join us for just one hike or you can you join for the entire series. Whatever works for you!


Session 1 ScheduleSummit of 14er at sunrise
