Join Mappy Hour on our annual foray into the secluded backwoods for a fall foliage campout. Surrounded by a running creek and leaf-peeping aspen groves, this private property nestled in the mountains is only 1-hour away from downtown Denver, which lends itself well to campfire stoking, whiskey drinking, and sleeping under the stars.

Add to that, this Choose Your Own Adventure trip is a mecca for any outdoor enthusiast. Access to private and public hiking trails abounds, world-class South Platte climbing is out the back door, with on-site and nearby single-track biking trails and renowned trout fishing within minutes. Did we also mention the roaming Great Pyrenees and alpacas on the grounds for added nature therapy?
