Details

For members of Rocky Mountain Over the Hill Gang

Reynolds Park is a beautiful way to get some elevation conditioning to prepare
for the higher peaks. The trail ascends gradually from the parking lot but is a steady up for 1000 feet. There is alot of sun on the ascent which is why we want to start early. The trail is excellant and there are no bicyles allowed which makes for a relaxing hike.
There is a open setting for lunch with sun or shade and a fabulous panorama of all Rampart Range with Pikes Peak vividly in the back.

The descent follows a creek and is in the shade. The trail is more eroded with exposed rocks and poles will be needed.

You will be glad you made the effort . We will stop in Morrison for an after hike treat at the Morrison Inn or other favorite spot.



Notes

A brimmed hat, sunscreen and plenty of water (2 liters) are needed. Also rain gear and plan for mud and slippery rocks--poles are necessary for descent especially. The pace will be slow but steady with very short breaks for water and breathing!!

The stream is really heavy and there were 11 stream crossing - poles are essential - Trail is in excellent shape




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
