Notes

This is a 4.5 mile off-trail hike to the highest points in the Rampart Wildlands (near Rampart Range Road and FR327.  We will (try to) hike to Pt 9348, Pt 9302 (known in the climbing community as Parachute Rock), and walk along the exposed ridgeline separating the Bear Creek and Stark Creek drainages.  Along the way, we will search for any sign of the roadbed of the alleged 1880s wagon road from Perry Park to Bergen Park.   Other than being off-trail, this should be easy -- 900' of elevation gain.
 
I expect some fall color; this will be a great chance to see some of the less-visited areas in the Wildlands as well as look for fresh damage caused by illegal motorbike use.  No guarantee we actually make it to the top of any of these points, as this is not a "climbing" trip, but we will give it a shot!
 
Goal is to be back in time to watch the Broncos crush the Eagles.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
