Welcome!

Don Carpenter, Group Chairman, welcomes you to the Fort Collins Group of the Colorado Mountain Club.

Please check out our Activity Schedule page for trips and other club activities. Guests are welcome to sign up for trips and activities. Please come and try us out!

If you decide to join us on a trip as a guest, you will need to call the trip leader to see if the trip is still open (sometimes there are participant limits). You will also need to sign a Release of Liability form. This form can be obtained from a trip leader, or on our Membership page as part of the membership application. As a guest, to find a trip leader's contact information please call Membership services at 800.633.4417.

Note that all of our leaders are trained in leadership, safety and first aid skills.



Are you new to mountain hiking and want to hit the trails in 2015? Are you an experienced backcountry traveler who wants to gain mountaineering knowledge and improve skills? Plan to join the 2015 edition of the Fort Collins CMC Mountain Hiking School.

We will meet in five interactive classroom sessions, practice skills learned on five field trips, and utilize the gamut on the July graduation hike. Classroom topics include dry land travel (gear, weather, knots, scree, and talus), navigation with map and compass, emergency survival, mountain weather, and snow travel. Experienced volunteer instructors will help you learn and practice techniques in an open group environment. The classroom sessions and field trips will start in late February and end by early May. For more information, click HERE.


Monthly Programs resume on January 28, 2015 at the Fort Collins Senior Center from 7-9:00PM. January's program is The Fort Collins Group's Inaugural Equipment Swap Meet.
