Details

. This is a casual pace Easy A hike limited to RMOTHG members and CMC guests. This Douglas County Open Space Park is known for its forested gently rolling terrain, open meadows, variety of wildlife, and panoramic vistas. The loop hike will depart from the open space parking lot and descend west to panoramic views of Dawson Butte, Rampart Range, and Pikes Peak. After a lunch/snack stop the hike returns to the parking area. Total round trip is approximately 5.0 miles with about a 400 foot elevation gain. The trail is well established, but poles may be useful on several sections of the trail. 

There will be an optional lunch/social stop at the Rockyard American Grill and Brewery in Castle Rock after the hike, directions to be provided.
