Hike promotes community

The hikes change location monthly

Posted

More than 30 Arvada residents gathered the morning of April 15 for a community hike led by volunteer and Arvada City councilman Mark McGoff. The group, which included veteran hikers, those combating injury and first timers, hiked west and north on the new Rocky Mountain Greenway Trail through the Westminster Nature Center Park and the Westminster and Broomfield Open Space areas.

McGoff has been leading community hikes in Arvada for 16 years.

“I do it primarily to familiarize people with the parks and trails system in the City of Arvada,” he said. “We have about 150 miles of trails in the City of Arvada.”

McGoff started the hikes to familiarize people with the trail system in the city. Now, he hosts hikes on a monthly basis. Hikers meet at different trail heads each month. The hike averages 30 people, but has drawn as many as 50 and as little as 3 on a cold, rainy day in 2016.
