Details

We will hike from the main trailhead parking lot at Staunton east on the Dines Meadow trail and then north on the Mason Creek Trail, enjoying the early morning coolness of the streamside.  We will proceed on Mason Creek to the Bear Paws Trail as far as the Catamount, Pikes Peak, and  Eagle Cliffs Overlooks, providing views south to Pikes Peak, west to the Mount Evans massive, and down to the rest of the park.  We need to get back to the picnic area by 12:30 so the return route will depend on the time available.  If time allows, we will return the same way.  If we are tight on time, we will proceed to the Mason Creek Trail and return along Mason Creek, skipping the overlooks.  Starting elevation is about 8200 feet.




Notes

This trip is in conjunction with the RMOTHG Annual Picnic.  You must sign up separately for the picnic (and bring a contribution).  The early start time is because we need to be back at the Ranch Hand Picnic Area at 12:30.  The park gates currently open at 6am.
