Details

This is a loop hike on established trails. The first mile is a tough climb of 1100 feet to the top of Chautauqua Mountain. The hike proceeds to the SW along the ridge top of Chautauqua Mountain with excellent views of Pikes Peak and numerous interesting rock formations. We will then drop down to the Upper Palmer Rerservoir and proceed North over the ridge into the Ice Cave Creek drainage. The Ice Cave Creek drainage is known for it's outstanding rock formations. We will follow the Ice Cave Creek Trail back to the Lower Palmer Reservoir and then back to the trail head. Fall colors should be nice just above the upper reservoir and along Ice Cave Creek.




Notes

Nine of us (8 members & 1 guest) had a very nice outing. The weather was spectacular and the Fall colors were great.
