Steve Bonowski   (remember to incude the letter 'b'; otherwise, your e-mail will go to the other 'climbersteve' in England! )    E-mail contact preferred to avoid phone tag. In a "tight situation," you can leave a message on my cell phone:  720-459-2841   (I do not have a land line) .

Whenever you have to cancel out of a trip, it is your responsibility to do that online.  I will see it.  Here's how:  Log in to>Members>My Membership>My trips> find this trip (all your upcoming trips are listed in date order) click "cancel."

IN ADDITION:   You can TEXT me if you have to cancel the night before or the morning.


This is a lovely hike with nice views of Golden, the Front Range, and west to the Continental Divide.  

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, schools, etc.  I'll 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 advise me of any medical conditions that might impact your hiking.

Please bring those of the  10 essentials  appropriate to a three-hour hike. Wear proper hiking boots, sunscreen, a hat, and bring plenty of water.  Traction devices, such as microspikes, probably will be necessary.  (We recommend you always carry them in your pack from late fall through early summer.)  

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 "Doggie Hikes" on the CMC calendar.
