Event Overview

You've probably been on a ton of hikes and are very comfortable outdoors. Many people love living in Colorado because of the access to trails and wilderness areas. It is a truly breathtaking place to live!

On 14ers, for example, a good chunk of the accidents that happen occur on the way down because the hiker has already made it to the top and now all they have to do is go down. They lose their awareness and a decision to stop, eat and rest gets overlooked in an urge to get back. According to the mission reports from the Alpine Rescue Team they were called out 134 times last year. 100 of those were before September. Howard Paul, a member of the Alpine Rescue Team said "They think it's a walk in the park, when in fact it is a walk in the wilderness.
