The Rocky Mountain Wanderers are a Colorado volkssport club. Volkssporting in the United States is sponsored by the American Volkssport Association (AVA); a nationwide, grassroots network of about 300 active clubs presenting more than 3,000 volkssporting events each year. Walking – also called “volksmarching” – is the most popular of all volkssports.

By the 1880s, with the removal of much of the Native American population to reservations, the federal government had begun to close many frontier forts. The rapid growth of the railroad had made it easier for the Army to quickly move troops to where they were needed. Colorado Sen. Henry M. Teller introduced a bill in Congress authorizing construction of the post, and it was signed in February 1887. A little over three acres was set aside in 1889 for a post cemetery.
