Details

We hike a long loop in two adjacent Douglas County Open Space parks just north of Palmer Lake - Spruce Meadows and Spruce Mountain.  This is mostly open and rolling prairie terrain with a primitive Rampart Range roadless area as backdrop just to the west.  Enjoy it before the housing developements arrive.




Notes

Don't be intimidated by the "C" hiking desgnation.  This is one of the few trips where classification is decided on distance and not elevation gain.  If your feet can stand twelve miles, you can do it!




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
