The Colorado Mountain Club is the oldest and largest human-powered recreation organization in Colorado, with over 9,000 members throughout the state. The organization works to unite the explorers and admirers of the Rocky Mountains, and to protect the important landscapes that are the legacy of Colorado. Founded in 1912, members of the Colorado Mountain Club have been playing in and advocating for the wild lands in Colorado for more than one hundred years.
