Details

Join us for a fun, moderate paced afternoon social hike to experience Boulder's glorious fall weather and fall colors while we are still on Daylight Savings Time and able to take longer hikes.  We will hike up the Homestead Trail to the mouth of Shadow Canyon and loop back to the Mesa Trail via Upper Big Bluestem Trail - we should see the changing colors of sumac bushes.



** we ended up going up the Homestead Trail to the old Mesa Trail and up the hogback for a view of Boulder, coming down the same way to beat the coming storm.



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



Come prepared for any weather with good footwear, rain jacket, headlamp or flashlight.  Some will bring snacks to share during the hike, plus option for after-hike food and drink at a nearby restaurant.
