Details

(Rescheduled from April 13) Discover a hidden gem in our midst and watch the morning sun illuminate Pikes Peak. We'll start at the trail head near Mark Reyner stables at 5:40 a.m. and, using headlamps if needed, hike up to an overlook point for the sunrise. Then we'll circumnavigate the park on the Templeton Trail, passing through Bat Canyon and the Jugglers as the city wakes up at our feet. The 4.5 mile loop concludes down the beautifully forested North Canyon. The trail is uneven and rocky and has some good ups and downs so leave the tennys at home. Optional after sidebar: we'll find a cup of joe and a cinnamon roll at a nearby coffee shop.
