Details

This is a continuation of the traditional Turkey Sandwich Hike. Let's get outside on the day after Thanksgiving to burn off those calories!



This is a point-to-point trip. We will meet at the Coyote Ridge trailhead at 8 a.m. We will leave 2 or 3 cars at the Coyote Ridge trailhead then form a car pool and drive to the Devil's Backbone trailhead. From the Devil's Backbone trailhead we will hike north along the Blue Sky Trail, then east on the Rimrock Trail (up and down two hogback ridges) connecting to the Coyote Ridge Trail back to our parked cars. We will then drive back to the Devil's Backbone trailhead to pick up the cars that we left there.



We will see some fantantic red rock formations along the way, and enjoy stunning views of the foothills with the snow covered peaks of Rocky Mountain National Park in the distance.



Participants are expected to know and bring the ten essentials. Be sure to dress in layers with waterproof boots, waterproof pants, gloves, hat and extra thermal layers.
