Now that Spring has arrived, the San Juan Outdoor Club is looking forward to hosting another full season of hiking and other exciting activities.

The club is a nonprofit organization that is devoted to providing outdoor opportunities for its members — by its members — and offers a schedule that includes weekly day hikes and mountain biking, backpacking, plus a monthly meeting covering topics of interest and three parties a year. Our primary goal is to get outdoors and have fun together.

The hikes cater to a range of ability levels and, while most take place in the beautiful mountains that surround Pagosa Springs, we also schedule a few trips that are further away. Indeed, we’ll be heading over to Bryce Canyon National Park in a few weeks to sample the hiking there.
