Intro to hiking safety course

 

From Hiking Beginner to Summiting a 14er

 

The Colorado Mountain Club's Ascending Hike Series is an opportunity to make new friends, explore more of Colorado's hiking trails, and increase you hiking speed and stamina.

We’ll even offer a couple of 14’er climbs just for AH Participants at the end of the season!

Hikes start off easy and gradually progress in length and difficulty so  you're ready to tackle new challenges by the end of the summer.

No big commitment. You can jump in or out anytime.
