Details

We will hike the Seven Bridges Trail and cross a scree hillside on the south side of a canyon. This was the start of the original 1870’s route which went past Lake Moraine to the top of Pike’s Peak. We will hike through an area of fir and aspen and on to Jones Park which was once a pasture and potato fields for a few hardy homesteaders. To return to our cars, we will hike along Bear Creek and then cross Bear Creek to get onto Buckhorn Trail.  CMC members only.  A limited number of friendly, well behaved dogs may come on a first come, first served basis.  Please register with leader by phone.  No email; no texting.
