The Best MicroAdventures in Denver

Written by mappyhour

As Outdoor Retailer descended on Denver, our local chapter put together a night for both locals and visitors alike. We gathered at the Mountain Khakis flagship store to chat about where to find microadventures – the type you can fit in after work or on a Saturday.  The partial list below was compiled by Chapter Leader Jeremy Goldsmith. Comments are open if you’d like to add your suggestions!

Other thanks: Crazy Mountain Brewery for the beer and Mountain Khakis for hosting us! Denver-ites can join our next event by signing up here.
