Beginners to advanced, all levels are welcome. We will do a 2-4 hour hike in the Rocky Mountains within a 1 hour drive from Denver. We will meet at a coffee shop 20 mins drive west of downtown and will carpool to the trailhead. We'll go hiking in the mountains, connect with nature, soak in the sunshine, see pretty views, maybe see some wildlife, take snack and water breaks, learn about the wildflowers and trees, make new friends, get some exercise and breathe in the fresh mountain air! We will take as many photos as you'd like and send them to you at the end of the hike. Our hope is that you'll feel healthier and happier after spending time hiking with us and connecting with the beauty of Colorado. In the winter, we'll provide microspikes for people who need them. There will be an optional group lunch after the hike. The hike will be easy to moderate for people in good physical shape, but it can be challenging for people who do not exercise regularly. The hike's elevation will be somewhere between 6,000 and 12,000 ft. If we have enough cars in the group, we will do a hike further into the mountains. If there aren't enough cars in the group we'll do a hike closer to Denver in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains that we can Uber to and from. Minimum group size is 2 hikers.

Each experience will be different. I will determine the perfect trail, based on the day's weather conditions, the group's hiking experience and the number of cars in the group. I will send the trail and meeting information the day before the experience.
