Denver is located right next to the Rocky Mountains so it is a prime opportunity to explore the hikes and activities available or at least take in the majestic views. However, just because its pretty doesn’t mean its not dangerous.
Ill-prepared and inexperienced tourists often get lost, or worse, find themselves in danger when caught out by the weather or wildlife when exploring the surrounding lakes and mountains. In this scenario, not only are you a danger to yourself, but also the mountain rescue volunteers who must come to take you back to safety.
Mountain climbing and orienteering are not spur of the moment activities and parts of the Rocky Mountains are, more often than not, for experienced outdoorspeople. If you are a beginner and do wish to explore, book an activity to experience adventure in a supervised environment or sign up to a tour with a guide.
