We will enjoy a quiet, contemplative hike at the Matthews-Winters Open Space Park. Participants will be asked to enjoy nature by keeping all conversation at a minimum (except with the leader as necessary), other than during lunch. This is an opportunity for those who enjoy trips without the chatter!

This Spring hike is at Jeffco Open Space Matthews-Winters Park, which is located near Morrison. The trail offers scenic views of the front range and the Metro Denver area. Enjoy meadows, red rocks, and meadows along the trails of Mathews/Winter Open Space.  Starting from the Parking Lot we will walk Dinosaur Ridge portion of the Hogback, descend down into meadows, and then up again into a beautiful red rock area completing the loop.  The elevation gain will be about 500' up/down a couple of times ranging from 6200' to 6800' for about 6 miles.

 This trip is limited to members of the Rocky Mountain Over The Hill Gang (RMOTHG).  Optional stop following trip for refreshments. Must bring snacks, water, ID, medical insurance card, and appropriate clothes for changing weather conditions.
