420 is the perfect weekend to get out and enjoy the beauty of Colorado! Join CannaVenture on Sunday, April 21st at El Dorado State Park for a scenic hike along the 3.4-mile Rattlesnake Gulch Trail—located about 40-50 minutes from downtown Denver.
Venture begins at 2pm! Visit here more information.
Disclaimer: Since this event is held on public land, consumption during the hike is not endorsed by CannaVenture or any of its affiliates. Instead, they recommended smoking before or after the hike. This is a “consume at your own risk” outing, so if you don’t consider yourself to be the most coordinated or athletic person in the world, you may want to consider waiting to smoke all together until after the hike.
