Details

We will meet at the Bergen Park RTD Park and Ride at 8:00 AM for departure no later than 8:15 AM. Directions to the park and ride will be provided. We will proceed up Squaw Pass to the parking lot for the bottom of the road to the Squaw Peak Fire Outlook. From here we will walk up the road to the junction with Old Squaw Pass Road and will hike up that road to the junction with the Chief Mountain Trail. The hike is a steady up and is rocky in places so good hiking boots and poles are strongly encouraged. It will take approximately 1.5 hours to get to the top. We will take a break for snacks at the top and return by the same route, arriving at the park and ride at about 1:15 PM. There will be an after hike gathering for food and refreshments at the Stagecoach Sports Grill about 1 mile from the park and ride. Directions will be provided.
