Location

We will hike to the three highpoint overlooks in Staunton State Park.  We will take the Mason Creek Trail to Bear Paw Trail.  From there we take the Border Line trail back to the junction with the Staunton Ranch Trail which will take us back to the trailhead.

From the overlooks we will have views of Pikes Peak, Green Mountain, Little Scraggy Peak and other peaks to the south of Hwy 285.

Details

We will assess the weather as we get closer.  Right now I assume that we may need micro spikes.  The Mason Creek Trail is mostly in the shade, and it will be a chilly start until we get sunshine.  Plan on lunch at the Eagle Cliffs Overlook.
