Details

This loop in nearby Lory State Park winds through forested hillsides, open meadows, and along rock outcrops with a stop at the upper portion of Arthur's Rock which provides great views of Horsetooth Reservoir and the surrounding area.   



The group will start at the Arthur's Rock trailhead and hike approximately 1.8 miles to the upper intersection with Howard's Trail with an optional spur to the summit of Arthur's.  We will return via Howard's Trail and the Mill Creek Link resulting in a loop of approximately 4.5 miles total.  At the end of the hike, we will find a spot to linger for anyone who wants to chat about other CMC trips, classes, or membership in general.   



As always, plans may change depending on weather conditions.



*ALTERNATIVE DATE NOTE:  Any new or prospective CMC members who can not make this trip on March 24th, or would prefer a trip of similar distance with slightly less elevation gain, can also sign up for the local Reservoir Ridge hike on March 23rd being led by Don Carpenter.  For more detail see the Reservoir Ridge trip posting; to sign up for that hike you can contact Don at dec5018@comcast.net.
