This is a CHANGE from the original posted trip to Silver Dollar Lake, due to inaccessibility from late spring snows. 

From the Staunton Ranch parking lot, hike the Dines Meadow connection to Mason Creek Trail to Bear Paw loopl, return to Mason Creek to Old Mill, to Staunton Ranch to the starting point.

This destination was chosen for it's lack of muddy trails during spring thaws, lower elevation and less snowpack, compared to competing B hikes.



Leader will send 2 day advance e-mail to participants with latest weather forecast and any final info.

Please bring rain gear, traction, ten essentials and snacks or lunch.


Starting this April, the Denver Member Initiatives Committee (DMIC) is excited to offer the Ascending Hikes series.  This program is geared towards new members and individuals seeking to gradually increase their fitness and hiking difficulty, with the goal of reaching the summit of a Colorado 14er in July 2019.  Members can sign up for any hike and do not have to sign up for the series.

The series will begin with a classification of Easy A hikes ( up to 8 miles round trip and/or 1200 ft. elevation gain) and progress to a classification of Difficult B hikes (up to 12 miles round trip and/or 2500 ft. elevation gain).  Hikes will occur on Tuesday and Saturday




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
