Details

After meeting at Safeway and carpooling about 30 miles to the trailhead on CO 67, we will hike 3.2 miles to the Pancake Rocks area gaining 1340 feet in elevation.  The moderately strenuous hike takes about 90 minutes at a moderate pace.  Once at Pancake Rocks we will cook up a big mess o' pancakes and enjoy breakfast among the golden aspens and cool rock formations.  We should be back at the Safeway by 1 pm.    

Notes

All participants must share in carrying breakfast items for the group.  This is an amazing fall foliage viewing area and the trip is timed to catch the turning aspens.
