OSHR 3128 - Take a Hike! (Perk Series Lecture)

  • Noncredit

This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

Have you ever wanted to hike a 14ner? Colorado has 54 peaks at least fourteen thousand feet above sea level. Most of them are just hikes at altitude, not technical, meaning that the use of climbing gear such as ropes and "protection pieces" are not required. Most of them have fairly well-marked routes to the summit. The keys to a successful summit hike are relatively simple. One must have a good level of aerobic conditioning, a fair degree of knowledge of Colorado weather, and a dose of common sense. Proper clothing and footwear are essential.

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
