2013 Hike Series - Sign up pages below

For years we've been writing letters, attending meetings Click to sign up for hikesand advocating for the protection of new wilderness. But the best way to truly know these areas is to get out there to connect and see for ourselves why these places are worth protecting.

Wilderness Workshop is now taking the lead on organizing the hike series - click on the links below for detailed information about each hike and to sign up.

This summer is an especially exciting hike series, since we'll be leading hikes into areas proposed for protection under Sen. Udall's Central Mountian Outdoor Heritage Act (and a few additional lands we think should be added). Join us for guided hikes into some of the state's last remaining unprotected wild lands, and get a first hand experience in some of the places we're trying to protect for future generations.

All hikes are free, but you need to register in advance by clicking the name of the hike or emailing the hike coordinator in the appropriate county or valley. In the spirit of Wilderness, all outings are limited to 15 participants.

If you're not the group-hiking type, then why not do your own hike, and take along some friends? If you do, please contact us before you go so we can provide maps, advice on routes, and information on how to advocate for the proposal areas. Also, please send us your pictures – we'll be happ
y to post them on our website or Facebook page.

To sign up, please click the name of the hike you wish to attend.

For more information on the hike series contact Michael Gorman: michael@wildernessworkshop.org or call us at (970) 963-3977.
