Details

We hike up Meadowlark Trail on to Plymouth Mtn Loop Trail, then visit Plymouth Mtn summit (7295').  On the descent we take Homesteader Trail back to Meadowlark.  Mountain bikes are active here so we use "Hiker Only" trails where possible.  Nice views of the southern metro area from many places.



Pretty plain hike for this leader but it looks like mountain weather cound be coming in this weekend, so I am staying close to home.  Dry weather this week should vanish muddy trails (common in the winter) at this low elevation park.  New members welcome but so is everyone else.




Notes

For new members - CMC classifies hikes A, B, C, or D.  These classes are defined by elevation gain and distance (see left side of schedule page).  But for pratical purpose the classes indicate increasing difficulty from A to D.  Statistics indicate about half our trips are "B", one quarter each "A" and "C", and a small percent are "D".  For those interested, most 14ers are "D" class hikes due to elevation gain.




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
