Please note: fees for Roxborough State Park are $7.00 per vehicle.  Let's meet at the Woodmen Park 'n' Ride (Woodmen and Corporate Drive near I-25 and Woodmen) at 8:00 am. ***** Participants from Denver should be at Roxborough State Park Visitor's Center no later than 9:00am. We'll travel to Roxborough State Park via carpool,  We'll begin our hike at the Visitor's Center and hike up to Carpenter's Peak, then drop down to the Powerline trail just west of the park, and then travel south ascending  up the Powerline Trail re-entering the park through the Elk Valley trail, and return to the Visitor's Center. This is a steep hike with ascents and descents. Please be prepared for an "all-day" outing with at least 2 liters of water, food, warm layers, and rain gear.  Ice walkers may be needed as well.  Please do let me know if you need to cancel your participation in this trip ahead of time.
