Happy Hour

Janet’s Cabin Overnight
Summer Hut Trip

Sign Up Now

Summer Hut Trip! We have been checking out area huts during the winter months, and the time has come for a summer backcountry excursion.

Located at timberline in the Guller Creek Drainage next to the Copper Mountain Ski Resort, Janet’s Cabin is a 7 mile hike in along the Colorado Trail. This is an overnight trip and you will be carrying in all of your supplies and food! It is a physically demanding hike at high altitude. For those joining us, there is a hut informational meeting prior to the trip, where we will go over what to bring, how to pack your pack, and what to expect. Minors are welcome to attend but must be very strong hikers and must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Limited spots available.

Dates and Times:
Tuesday, July 25, 9:00am – Wednesday, July 26, 5:00pm.
Fee: $55 per person. Includes transportation, accommodations and breakfast on 7/26.
All other meals and snacks are your responsibility.

Trails and Ales Hiking Series

Summer is a great time for exploring local trails and local ales (and whiskey). Clear Creek Recreation is teaming up with our local breweries and distillery to offer the best of both worlds! We will start with a 3-5 mile hike and finish up with happy hour refreshments. Hikes are free to attend (we will be accepting donations for the local food bank, Loaves and Fishes) and drinks will be on your own. Please register in advance with the Clear Creek Recreation Center. Spots are limited and hiking start times vary.
