Location

Meeting Location: In front of the Fort restaurant on Highway 8, just north of Highway 85, Morrison exit, and west of C-470. Meet at 6:45 am for a 7 am departure.

After meeting at the Fort we will carpool up HW 285 to Pine Junction and then take a left on Pine Valley road to the Pine Valley Ranch Park TH.

Starting at the Pine Valley Ranch Park TH we will take the Park View trail, the Strawberry Jack trail and the Homestead trail to the Raspberry Ridge trail. We will take the Raspberry Ridge trail to a high point with great views and interesting rock formations. The hike is all on trail. This is a scenic and interesting hike through parts of the Buffalo Creek burn area (1996).

Bring traction devices, although it is unlikely that we will need them. See https://photos.app.goo.gl/PJpZa64KDt06tw3K3THIS TRIP IS FOR NEW AND PROSPECTIVE CMC MEMBERS ONLY. We will answer new members practical questions and talk about pace, clothing, gear, etc. Bring your questions and concerns. IF YOU HAVE BEEN ON A NEW MEMBER TRIP BEFORE, please wait until a few days before the trip date to sign up, in order to reserve scarce places for true newbies.

For preparation help, check out these articles for members at CMCDenver.org. We will talk about all these matters on trip day.

Details

The goal is to get new members comfortable with the trip sign-up and trip-taking process. We will answer new members; practical questions and can talk as you wish about pace, clothing, gear, etc.



I will write you with a weather forecast the day before. Do not assume bad weather means the trip is canceled. We only cancel if the roads are treacherous. We just try to dress appropriately.



Please bring those of the 10 Essentials http://www.rei.com/learn/expert-advice/ten-essentials.html appropriate to a mountain hike: Wear proper hiking boots, sunglasses and sunscreen, a hat, a personal first aid kit, nutrition items, and plenty of water. Rain jacket with hood is a year-round pack item.



Advise me of any medical conditions that might impact your hiking.



Part of the trail is steep and gravel-slippery, so bring hiking poles if you use them.



No jeans or cotton clothing. We can talk more about all that on trip day.



NO DOGS, please! Look for designated doggie hikes on the CMC calendar.
