What Is Approachable Outdoors? 

My name is Kylie Bearse and I’m a Meteorologist in Denver, Colorado. Approachable Outdoors is where I share the hikes I love! Exploring the mountains is my favorite part about living in Denver but I feel like there’s an “intimidation factor” when you’re first getting started. So Approachable Outdoors is your beginner-friendly guide to hiking and outdoor adventures.

Why “Approachable?”

I’m not your typical Colorado “outdoorsy” but I just absolutely love getting outside. I also believe it’s incredibly beneficial for my mental health and I want everyone to feel empowered to get out on the trail & explore, no matter your skill level. For the most part, these are your friendly, shorter hikes that’ll have you back in the city in time for Happy Hour!
