Hiking Club at CU
Take a Hike!
We lead multiple trips every weekend! Whether you want a short local hike or a multi-day excursion into the mountains, we have something for you! Check out the calendar and application tips below.
We list trips up to one month in advance, so check back in to see what's new!
Please note that trips are subject to change depending on weather and other factors. We send out official application emails a week in advance of each trip, so check your email to apply!
How to Apply
We send trip applications via email, so make sure to sign up for our email list on our homepage.
You must also fill out this WAIVER before applying for a trip.
Dues can be paid at the beginning of your first hike. See our membership page for more info.
A lot of students apply for our trips, and we are also limited by the number of people that open spaces allow in a single group, so don't worry if you're not accepted - there are always more! We also make sure to prioritize people who haven't gone on hikes with us before.
Some tips for being accepted:
Be creative! We love seeing your personality and humor in the responses.
Come to social/office hours! We love getting to know everyone, so stop by to introduce yourself - especially if there's a trip you're especially stoked about!
Attend volunteer events! To show appreciation for the outdoors, we love organizing clean-ups and other events. Lend a hand and make some friends!
Keep applying! Never give up, and keep signing up for hikes! We like to include everyone in the outdoors!
