Details

We will hike the west side of Mount Falcon Park, making a loop from Parmalee Trail to Ute Trail to Tower, Meadow and Castle trails.  We will not see the castle on this hike.  Weather permitting, there are many views of the plains and the mountains, including the sure-to-be snowy Continental Divide.



Plan for our changing Colorado weather, warm, wet, cool.  Dress in layers, and include your poles and 10 essentials.  Bring your traction devices; we'll evaluate the need for them at the trailhead.  Remember your water, lunch and snacks for the day.  The hike is about 5 miles round trip.



Tuesday evening Martha will send out an update on the hike, to include weather report and any changes to the hike.  Please contact her if you don't receive a message by 6:30PM.  If you decide to cancel, please do so in the CMC calendar online, and also email Martha, sabona51@comcast.net.



 




Notes

If you have any medical conditions Martha should be aware of before the hike, please let her know.  Confidence regarding your comments will be maintained.  After we return to our cars at the original meeting location, those that are interested will go to The Cow in Morrison, a mile west from the parking lot.
