Whenever you have to cancel out of a trip, it is your responsibility to do that online.  I will see it.  Here's how:  Log in to>Members>My Membership>My trips> find this trip (all your upcoming trips are listed in date order) click "cancel."

IN ADDITION:   Please TEXT me if you have to cancel the night before or the morning of.  Emails will be lost in my inbox.


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.

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.

Let me know of any medical conditions that might affect you on the trip.




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
