Errors, Omissions, Responsibility
This web site constitutes an "online guidebook" for activities that could be considered by some to be "high-risk", whatever that means. Coming from the midwest myself, I have seen that being a lethargic couch potato is just about the most high-risk activity there is in terms of health issues, but who am I to judge. You could potentially get hurt engaging in outdoor activities, and SelectHikes accepts no responsibility for any injuries you may receive or actions you may take while engaged in outdoor pursuits. Pretty simple. Also, it's impossible to break your computer or GPS by trying to download routes to it, but if you somehow manage to do that, it's not our fault.
The articles on SelectHikes.com are created based on information from the author's own experience as well as publicly available sources. Selecthikes.com takes no responsibility for any information presented on this web site that may be in error, whether it be due to a mistake in the publicly available information provided to us, our own error such as a typo, or information that has changed since the article was originally published. The reader should always verify the latest details of an area or activity. A corrections form is available on the Contact page so that we may be informed of any mistakes or changes.
Advertising and Ad Blocking Software
This web site cannot exist without advertising, it is what pays for our time, hosting fees, and other expenses. The price you pay for having free and open access to this information is that you have to see some advertisements. The ads are targeted specifically to this web site, and typically represent excellent discounts and coupons to activities around Colorado. This web site can only continue to exist if visitors view advertisements. If you have ad blocking software installed, please consider this fact. This web site DOES NOT have pop up ads, "you have just won $1,000,000" ads, or any of that garbage. SelectHikes.com has ads from real businesses that want to help you enjoy your leisure time, plain and simple. So do all of us a favor and turn off the ad-blocking software. If you happen to go to a web site that bothers you with pop up ads and other garbage, don't go to that web site anymore, and send them a complaint via email if you have the time. THAT IS THE BEST AD BLOCKING THERE IS.
