Details

*This hike is designed for elementary aged and younger kids and their families. Pacing and activities will be adapted for a youth and family audience. 



Join us on our Colorado Families Hike Series. The goal is to get families outside together, meet other families, and unlock and inspire children’s curiosity for exploring nature.



Snowshoeing- Head out into winter forest on a snowshoe excursion. Learn the basics of snowshoeing, snow science, winter ecology, and animal adaptions as you travel through the majestic winter wonderland!



Gear: Please bring the “10 Essentials” plus the "11th Essential"- face covering and hand sanitizer, snowshoes*, winter/waterproof boots and outer layers, extra warm layers, gloves, ski goggles in case we encounter higher than expected winds, food, snacks, and water as needed. Optional extras: hand warmers, thermos with hot drinks, insulated sit pad for snacks/lunch breaks, poles with snow baskets. 



*Snowshoe Rentals: Don't own any snowshoes? Rent your snowshoes from the CMC! Our gear library program runs on a "pay what you can" donation system, and all funds go towards our Youth Education Program. Find out more about our gear library here



Please email with any additional gear requests. We can supplement warm & waterproof layers and overboots (additional waterproof/insulated layer that goes over your hiking/regular shoes)
