Details

For RMOTHG MEMBERS ONLY:  We'll hike a casual pace from NCAR MESA using William Orr, Mesa, and Bear Canyon trails for approx. 3 miles (total  RT 5.4 - 6 miles depending on how far we choose to hike). You'll experience ups/downs with views of the Flatirons and Boulder, many mostly easy steps, six stream crossings you can easily step over, some rocky trail sections, many switch backs, diverse terrain, with trail usually next to rushing Bear Creek. This hike is a good workout, but we'll hike a pace comfortable for all. Before we start, we'll use bathrooms inside NCAR which lets us view NCAR'S interactive cloud, tornado makers, and other displays. Fine view of Boulder area from NCAR Mesa.

Notes

We've cancelled this hike twice, hope to have good weather this time! Bring rain gear, however, and a wind jacket as winds can be strong here, and poles. PLEASE LOOK FOR TUESDAY NIGHT EMAIL ABOUT CONDITIONS,  LAST MINUTE INFO.  You need your usual ten essentials, plenty of water.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
