Notes

The trip began at the Colorado Mountain Club before ascending rapidly Chimney Gulch Trail with breathtaking views of the Front Range and downtown Golden.  At Windy Saddle, traversed to Buffalo Bills Museum and Grave Site before continuing on to the Lookout Mountain Nature Center for a well - deserved lunch break.  After lunch, followed Lookout Mountain Trail to the Apex Trail interchange.  Rapid descent of Apex Trail, before offering assistance to a mountain bike party with a possible concussion; Search & Rescue evacuated the injured mountain biker without incident.  Continued down the Apex Trail past Heritage Square and on to the Highway - 6 Trail to return to the City of Golden via the Colorado School of Mines. 

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
