ACES Trekkers | One
Do you want to take your hiking and naturalist skills to new heights this summer? You and your fellow trekkers will explore some of Aspen’s most beloved trails! Discover lands way beyond Hallam Lake while practicing the same ethics of environmental stewardship and leave-no-trace philosophy during this week-long class. We’ll look at the maps and follow our sense of adventure as we hike the trails to gain broader understanding of the ecological dynamics around Aspen. At the end of the week, we’ll celebrate all we’ve accomplished with a final hike up Aspen Mountain to cap off our adventures!
What To Bring:
Pack a backpack with snack, lunch, reusable water bottle, rain jacket, warm layer, change of clothes, sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses. Please remember to label everything.

How To Get There:
