I started Go Hike Colorado in March of 2014 and it has been an incredible first year.
This was a project that I have wanted to dive into for years, and I am certainly glad that I have taken the plunge. In our first year we had more than 30,000 page visits, the first three months of the 2nd year have so far seen 15,000 visits. Support for this site is growing rapidly and I couldn't be more excited. I have received some wonderful comments from fellow hikers, and a photo from the site was used by 5280 Magazine in their April 2015 Issue (See the Beaver Brook Trail article...http://www.5280.com/travelandoutdoors/magazine/2015/03/50-urban-adventures-you-must-try?page=full). By all counts it has been a great success.
Blogger has been a terrific tool, the site has made it possible for me to organize the hikes and photos, create descriptions, and get a taste of how a website like Go Hike Colorado could work. With all due gratitude to blogger...it is time to move on.
The new site can be found at: www.gohikecolorado.com Please feel free to drop me an email or leave a comment on the blog and let me know what you think of the new site. Please let me know if you would like the new site to have any other features or if anything on the new site should be changed or improved.
I truly hope that you enjoy the new site. I'm sure you will appreciate the improved organization, functionality, and features. Updating two sites will push the limits of my free time. So unfortunately, I won't be updating this site any more. However, there are many new wonderful hikes to be found at www.gohikecolorado.com. At some point I will install a redirect so typing in www.gohikeco.com will take you to the new site, but I'll leave this site up and running for a while, just in case you can't handle the change...
