We will walk some of the trails on the Open Space, then move over towards Elephant Butte, which is on a Denver Mountain Park. The trail follows along some cliffs and then zickzacks up to the summit. Great view of Mt. Evans.


We did not need snowshoes but the microspikes were helpful.  The hike was shorter than advertised: more like 5.5 miles and 1200 ft. We had a wide variety of hikers, some very slow, some very fast but we stayed together.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
