Details

This will be a loop hike through many of the trails in the park. We will start on the Staunton Ranch trail, follow it to Bugling Elk. Then we will connect to the new West Meadow trail which loops around Elk Falls Pond. This trail leads to the Elk falls overlook. From there we will go down to Elk Falls. On the way out we follow Chimney Rock to Marmot passage, then on to the Scout Line trail and back to the parking lot on the Staunton Ranch trail.



This hike will cover almost 14 miles, so be prepared for a long day on some very nice trails. 



 



 




Notes

Bring plenty of water, lunch and snacks. Please volunteer to drive if you have a State Park pass. Otherwise, we will share the park fees. 




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
