Fort Collins Group
Ward Whicker, Group Chairman, welcomes you to the Fort Collins Group of the Colorado Mountain Club. We are a community of more than 300 adventure-loving outdoorspeople who enjoy experiencing Colorado's mountains. Whether it's a hike around Horsetooth Reservoir, a climb of Longs Peak, a fishing trip on the Poudre River or simply a potluck social, we invite you to get involved with our active and exciting Group.
Please check out our Activity Schedule page for upcoming trips and other club activities. Guests are welcome, please don't be shy to see what we have to offer! Note that all of our leaders are trained in leadership, safety and first aid skills.
If you decide to join us on a trip as a guest, you will need to call the trip leader to see if the trip is still open (sometimes there are participant limits). You will also need to sign a Release of Liability form. If you need further assistance, please contact CMC Membership Services at 303-279-3080.
The Fort Collins Group is one of 13 regional chapters of the statewide Colorado Mountain Club. The CMC is headquartered in Golden, Colorado.
