We'll hike the Pancake Rocks trail between Divide and Cripple Creek on Hwy. 67 south.  Let's meet at the Red Rocks Safeway (32nd and Colorado) in Colorado Springs.  We'll carpool heading west on Hwy. 24 to Divide and turn south onto Hwy. 67.  We'll park near the old Midland Railroad Tunnel.  We'll then head east up the trail (about 1 mile) to the intersection for Horsethief Falls and Pancake Rocks.  We'll then head south up the steep switchbacks to the top of the ridge, drop down into a ravine, head back uphill to the southwest, and finally level out near the end of our hike.  Pancake shaped rocks will come into view at the end.  We can scramble up some of the rocks, if participants wish to do so.  We will return via the same route. Please bring lunch (food),  at least 2L or quarts of water, rain gear, warm layers, and ice walkers as we may encounter some ice on the trail.  Our starting elevation will be about 9100 ft. and the elevation at the end will be approximately 10,500 ft.  Weather may be quite changeable. 

For Woodland Park participants:  If you wish to meet us at the trailhead, please let me know ahead of time.  We could also arrange to meet you at the Safeway in Woodland Park if you wish to carpool.  Again, please contact me at least one day before the scheduled hike.

*****If you need to cancel your participation in this hike, please contact me ahead of time.  On the day of the hike you will need to telephone me as I will not have access to email.
