Join the Colorado Mountain Club Today
Make the most out of Colorado! The Colorado Mountain Club helps you maximize living in an outdoor playground and connects you with other adventure-loving mountaineers. We summit 14ers, climbs rock faces, work to protect the mountain experience and educate generations of Coloradans.
Explore the mountains and meet new people with the Colorado Mountain Club. Join us for trips, hikes and activities throughout the state!
The Colorado Mountain Club is the state’s leading organization dedicated to adventure, recreation, conservation and education. Founded in 1912, the CMC acts as a gateway to the mountains for novices and experts alike, offering an array of year-round activities, events and schools centered on outdoor recreation. The Club comprises regional groups across the state to serve the local needs of its members and partners. To ensure the continued enjoyment of Colorado’s pristine places, the CMC also leads efforts to protect wild and public lands with its conservation and stewardship programs. The Club publishes a quarterly magazine, Trail & Timberline, and operates a press with more than 50 current titles. No other organization in the Intermountain West employs such a strong or broad approach to connecting people with the Rocky Mountain landscape.
As a CMC member, you can hike or climb nearly every day of the week, learn new outdoor skills or improve those you already have, volunteer for a stewardship project, help build a new hiking trail or maintain an old one and enjoy our CMC publications. Check out our Guide to Membership.
