Meet at the Fort at 7:45 am to set up carpools and to leave promptly by 8:00 am.  Bring small bills to pay your driver about $2 per person.

The Fort Restaurant is located on Hwy 8, just north of Hwy 285, off the first southbound exit after C-470.  Between the restaurant parking lot and Hwy 8, there is a dirt area where people pull in to carpool up into the mountains. http://tinyurl.com/hq3hs48

Details

This is a beautiful park with a babbling stream (if not frozen!), with an exceptional variety of vegetation, and great views.   On a clear day, we can see all the way to Pike's Peak.   We will be mostly in the forest but sometimes in the sun.  Expect to wear layers. 



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'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 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. 



Traction devices, such as Microspikes, may be necessary as the trail could be icy. (We recommend you always carry them in your pack from late fall through early summer.)



A few small parts of the trail is steep, so bring hiking poles if you use them. If you have never used hiking poles, I have a few to loan, if you'd like to try them.



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



Please let me know if you have a medical condition that might affect you on the trail.



NO Dogs, please. Look for designated "Doggie Hikes" on the calendar.
