Centennial Cone Park offers a near-backcountry experience that challenges stamina, offers sweeping views of Clear Creek, and provides the opportunity to see elk and other wildlife over wide expanses. Because the Elk Range Trail is closed until summer for elk calving, we will be not completing a loop. Instead we will start at the North Trailhead, and hiking about 4 miles in, before turning around and retuning the way we came.

The goal is to get new members comfortable with the trip sign-up and trip-taking process. We will answer new members' practical questions and can talk as you wish about pace, clothing, gear, etc.  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, probably will be necessary.  (We recommend you always carry them in your pack from late fall through early summer.) 

Part of the trail is 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>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.  


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
