TREK Outdoors

TREK Outdoors enables youth in Clear Creek County to explore the natural beauty and outdoor activities offered by our county.  Our goal is for any young person in Clear Creek County to have access to the incredible outdoor recreation opportunities that exist right in our own backyard!

Contact us to learn more or to get involved!



Mountain Youth Network supports the concept of building leadership and life skills in youth through outdoor recreation.  Various situations in the outdoors can be used to emphasize important skills such as resiliency, teamwork, empathy, responsibility, problem-solving, and communication. Participants will also develop technical skills in activities like hiking, backpacking, rafting, snow camping, snowshoeing, and climbing.  Mentorship, mindfulness, and teambuilding will be incorporated into activities to foster engagement and connection.

In July of this year, we hiked the Silver Dale loop guided by Georgetown Outdoor Discovery. We had a blast learning about the historical significance of the trail and getting to spend time in the great outdoors!
