Colorado Hiking Certificate

With the hiking season on us, it is time to renew or purchase a Colorado Hiking Certificate. With the $1 certificate, you will have paid into the fund as if you had purchased a hunting or fishing license. It is a way for back country users who do not hunt or fish to be covered by the fund.

Certificates are sold at most sporting goods stores and other outlets for hunting and fishing licenses. A portion of the cost also funds the Watchable Wildlife Program and non-game functions of the Colorado Division of Wildlife.

At times even the best of plans, map reading abilities and eyes on the trail are just not enough. If you need a search and rescue team, a Colorado hiking certificate may prove to be the purchase of a lifetime.
