This hike will contribute to understanding the Wilderness Qualities of the Rampart Range Wildlands, the largest block of roadless land on the Front Range urban backdrop. Under the guidance of a biologist, we will survey the beautiful creek and valleys of Cook Creek, a tributary of Plum Creek, for interesting or unusual plant and animal life. After a 4 mile hike in from Palmer Lake, we will be off-trail and exploring -- be prepared to climb over and through downed trees, maneuver through rocks, and wade in streams. Pace will be intermittent -- the biologist will guide us to research spots and we will spend time in that area before moving on to the next spot. Be prepared to be a research assistant, with food and water for a full day in the backcountry.


Several other bioblitz hikes are available on Saturday June 21and Sunday June 22 -- you may sign up for one or both dates. 

Guests should sign up with leader.
