Details

The hike will begin at the Soderburg Tailhead. We will hike the Swan Johnson trail to Tower Road. We will go up Tower Rd. to the Stout trail where we will head south. Along the Stout Trail we will see great views of Horsetooth Rock and spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains (if the day is clear). We will then turn north on the Herrington trail to return via Tower road and Swan Johnson to the trail head. The pace will be casual to moderate. Plan on eating lunch on the trail.

Before the hike there will be a very brief discussion of the 10 essentials (things to bring on a hike). On this hike remember it is Colorado (the weather can change at any time) so bring sunscreen, water, food, a raincoat, and a warm jacket (just in case).  



Notes

Although this trip is intended as a "get to know the system" for new members, existing members are also welcome. 



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
