The jewel of the Jeffco Open Space park system. From trailhead we will hike Plymouth Creek Trail then Red Mesa Loop and return to trhd. If there is time will also do extra mile out & back  Golden Eagle trail for great views. 


Although this trip is titled for new CMC members, all are welcome.  We will answer new members' practical questions and talk about pace, clothing, gear, etc.  Bring your questions. The goal is to get new members comfortable with the trip sign-up and trip-taking process.

Please also bring  the  10 essentials  appropriate to a four-hour hike and the actual weather.  Wear proper hiking boots.  No jeans or cotton  clothing.  Be prepared for inclement weather.   Anyone who shows up in the wrong footwear or clothing, or with insufficient water, etc., may not be allowed on the hike.  Rain jacket with hood  may  be a good pack item.  We can talk more about all that on trip day.  I will send out an email a day or two before.

Microspikes or equivalent  likely a MUST, as the trail may be icy.  

No dogs, please.  CMC policy is to allow dogs only on designated "doggy hikes," which abound in the spring and fall

Do NOT assume inclement weather means the trip is cancelled.  We usually cancel only if the roads are trecherous.  The leader will advise of any cancellation.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
