One of the best parts of living in the Grand Valley is our access to so many amazing areas right outside our door. Within hours you can be backpacking, climbing, boating, summiting a 14’er or setting up camp from your car. If you are wanting to plan an adventure but not sure yet what you want to do or you don’t have the gear that you need, check out our local trip plan ideas and the Outdoor Program rental shop to reserve any gear you need!

When you use our local trip plans we'll provide you with trip ideas, gear lists, meal plans and connect you with websites to obtain proper permits!
