Details

Dome Rock is an underrated nearby loop, great as long as you like rocks, meadows, trees, views, and streams.  We'll hope to time it right for some good fall color.  Be prepared for 7 stream crossings that will probably be deeper than your boots.



All the steep climbing is in the first 2 miles, with views of Pikes Peak.  After bouncing atop a ridge for a bit, we will descend a long forested valley towards Dome Rock.  We will take a short (1 mile RT, 150') off-trail to the base of the east side of Dome Rock.  The return is up a much wider and gentler valley, full of meadows and willows and surrounded by rocks.  



Walking pace will be moderate, but overall pace likely will be slower than many CMC trips. This is a fabulous hike for autumn photos, so we will pause as desired.  Please don't sign up if you just want to move fast all the time.  However, 12 miles is 12 miles and days will be getting short, so when we are moving, we will want to move reasonably quickly.  Thus also please don't sign up if you just want to move slow all the time.



No dogs or other non-human companion animals.
