One of UpaDowna’s cornerstone programs.
Our hiking adventures, also known as 3rd Saturday Adventures, takes place once a month at a new. We plan a hike, snow day or other fun outdoor event in a new location. Dating back since January of 2012, our first hike set the tone for the rest to come. It was a beautiful morning hike through our beloved Waldo Canyon. Each hike has a theme or outdoor education topic that we cover. Some have included the 10 essentials, wildfire safety/hazards, Leave No Trace and more.
Goals for this program include but are not limited to: connecting people with their natural surroundings in their community, connecting participants with other community members, helping to foster a level of comfort with exploring new spaces, education about the outdoors, environmental stewardship, and encouraging healthy lifestyles and behaviors.
A new hike in a new location each month gives the community an opportunity to explore the Pikes Peak Region!
FREE. Donations are always accepted. Special discounts to our sponsoring brewery are provided to participants.
