Hikes 2017

Hike-series-webGet outdoors this summer with a free hike led by Wilderness Workshop’s hiking guide. Our hikes will take you into the heart of areas we are working to protect. You’ll hear about the threats to our public lands from gas drilling and dams and learn about other issues like management challenges from increased recreation. During the hikes we’ll provide you with the tools to take action and save our backcountry. This year join us for trips to the Thompson Divide, proposed wilderness areas, the Crystal River, overused wilderness and potential reservoir sites on Castle and Maroon Creeks. Please feel free to call our office with any questions!
