Rocky Mountain Trail Tramps is a new gay men's hiking group dedicated to monthly hikes in the Rocky Mountains of Northern Colorado and beyond. The group was founded as an alternative to the "bar scene", to give gay men the opportunity to meet and socialize with one another in a healthy, outdoor atmosphere. Each month, this site will carry photos of previous hikes and news of upcoming events. And yes, the group's name really does come from a New Zealand slang term, "tramp" or "tramping", which roughly means "to hike".

With such a wide variety of beautiful terrain to cover, the Rocky Mountains are a hiker's paradise. From Front Range foothills to snow-fed rivers and streams, from alpine meadows to the snowfields and mountaintop ridge lines of the Rocky Mountain National Park, there are hiking adventures waiting for everyone. Come discover what the great Rocky Mountains of Northern Colorado have to offer for hiking!

We meet the 2nd Saturday and 4th Sunday of each month at 8:45 a.m. to carpool to the hiking area for a full day's outing. The carpool sites are centrally located in the Loveland/Ft. Collins areas with plenty of free parking.  We recommend wearing hiking boots and clothing appropriate to the weather. Day packs are useful for carrying your own water, sports drinks, snacks, sunscreen, etc. (Ideally, every hiker should be prepared with the Ten Essentials.) Email us with questions and to get on our email mailing list for reminders of upcoming hikes and other events: rockymountaintrailtramps@cox.net
