Details

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.

Notes

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.
