Details

Face it. The Broncos seem to be done for the year. Why not skip the couch and hit the woods on the first Sunday in December? We'll meet at "the Hub" parking area where Gold Camp Road and High Drive intersect, walk up Gold Camp Road, take the St. Mary's Falls trail and connect to the Mt. Rosa trail. Layer up and bring your poles, micro-spikes or yak tracks to handle the icy spots. Pack a headlamp and a thermos with warm liquids, too. The summit provides a great view of the Pikes Peak area and the Sangres to the southwest. You can register online BUT acknowledgement of your participation by email, text or, (gasp!) telephone will be required as we get within 48 hours of the hike. Prepared guests (gear and fitness) are welcome but no sorry no dogs. The canyon road up to the parking area can be icy so we can arrange to meet lower down and carpool up if your vehicle isn't up to the task.
