Location

Carpool Location: Table Mesa Shopping Center, meet by the (most recent) former CMC Boulder Club room location (between Great Clips and Elevations Credit Union) at the bench in front of Art Cleaners by 5:25 PM for a prompt 5:30 PM departure for trailhead.   Table  Mesa Shopping Center is on the SW corner of Table Mesa and Broadway, and the former CMC clubroom is on the west side facing Chase Bank

Trailhead Location:  Based on continued heavy rain, I will monitor conditions to pick the least impactful starting point.  Lets just plan on meeting at the carpool ocation (the trailhead will be nearby).

 



For more info Contact

Becky Ruttenberg. Call or text me at 303 579-3523 if you are arriving less than 5 minutes late to trailhead.



Details

Join us for a fun, moderate paced evening social hike. We will look for blooming flowers on Kohler Mesa, then continue on to points connected to the Mesa Trail.  There are several ways to access Kohler Mesa - with the continued rains and wet weather, I'll plot the least impactful way in (which will probably be up the road from NIST).  We will meet at the carpool location so that I can make a decision on where to start based on latest conditions.



** We ended parking at Table Mesa and Vassar, walking to the Holleyberry neighborhood to access the NIST road up the Kohner Mesa from the start of the bikepath.  Once on the NIST road, we continued into OSMP, walking clockwise through the Kohler Mesa meadow, then taking the access to Enchanted Mesa to the Mesa Trail South to Bear Canyon then taking trails along the edge of NCAR property back to the cars, for continuously changing flowers!



We will have a break to share snacks - feel free to bing some to share (and you are welcome to partake regardless!)



To better track participation, please register ahead of time for this trip but it is  also OK to show up at the carpool location.



Come prepared for any weather with good footwear, rain jacket, headlamp or flashlight.  Option for after-hike food and drink at a nearby restaurant.
