WIth Pastor's Ethan and Gary

IT'S BACK!  This June and July, ALL YOUTH grades 6-12 are invited to join Ethan and Gary on 5 amazing hikes.

WHO: Middle and High School students, parents, and volunteers.


  • Good hiking shoes
  • Small Backpack- something to carry water, your lunch, whatever you need
  • SACK LUNCH!  We will eat lunch up on the mountainside
  • Sunscreen if you need it
  • Awesome attitude

Detail for each hike is below.  We will start easy, and each week the hike will grow in length and distance.  All of our hikes have been researched, already hiked by Pastor Ethan, and are definitely doable for our students.

Parents and adults!  We must have at least two adults on every hike.  We would LOVE to have you join us- sign up for one of the hikes below!


You MUST have a permission slip on file at the church to participate!  If you don't, you can DOWNLOAD IT HERE. Fill it out and have your parents sign it, and bring it on the day of your first hike!

IF YOU NEED A RIDE TO DROP OFF AND PICK UP!  Our start and end points will be the church for all hikes EXCEPT our first hike in June.  If you need a ride to or from the church (or to and from Eagle for the first hike), you must contact pastor Ethan no later than 5pm on Thursday before the hike!  We will do everything we can to get you a ride. TEXT ME (pastor E) at 970-331-9657.

Note: if we have multiple students from Eagle or upvalley who need rides, we may arrange up and down valley pick up/drop off points.


This is where we will email you if there is any change of information!
Select the trips you plan on attending- you can come back and add to this later if needed
