Details

This is a beautiful park with a babbling stream (if not frozen!), with  an exceptional variety of vegetation, and great views.   On a clear day, we can see all the way to Pike's Peak.   We will be mostly in the forest but sometimes in the sun.  Expect to wear layers. 



I'll write you with a weather forecast the  day before. Do not assume bad weather means the trip is canceled.  We only cancel if the roads are treacherous. We just try to dress appropriately.



Although this is for new CMC members, all are welcome.  We will answer new members' practical questions and talk about pace, clothing, gear, etc.  Bring your questions and concerns.



Please bring those of the  10 essentials  appropriate to a three-hour hike. Wear proper hiking boots, sunscreen, a hat, and plenty of water.  Traction devices, such as microspikes, may be necessary.  (We recommend you always carry them in your pack from late fall through early summer.)  Part of the trail is a bit steep, so bring hiking poles if you use them.  If you have never used hiking poles, I have a few to loan, if you'd like to try them.



 No jeans or cotton  clothing.  We can talk more about all that on trip day. 



No dogs, please.  Look for Doggie Hikes on the CMC calendar.



If after signing up you need to cancel, you can do so at your membership dashboard, at CMC.org>Members>My Membership>My Trips.  I will see that when I check the roster so no need to tell me directly except if within the 24 hours before , especially at the last minute.  



 




Notes

Eagle's Crest loop takes about 3 hours at average pace. Beautiful views.
