Carpool Location: Table Mesa Shopping Center, meet by the (most recent) former CMC Boulder Club room location (between Great Clips and Elevations Credit Union) at the bench in front of Art Cleaners by 4:00 PM for a prompt 4:05 PM departure for trailhead.   Table  Mesa Shopping Center is on the SW corner of Table Mesa and Broadway, and the former CMC clubroom is on the west side facing Chase Bank


Trailhead Location:  Due to a forecast for snow, we will wait-and-see.  If it is merely cold and not wet, we will hike in the area of the South Mesa, Homestead and Towhee trails lokig for chaning sumac.  If it is wet but not snowy, I will look for a road-like place to hike.  If it is blizzarding, we won't hike!  WATCH THIS SPACE - I will update by noon on Thursday.

Becky Ruttenberg. Call or text me at 303 579-3523 if you are arriving less than 5 minutes late to trailhead.


CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER! Sunset is a magical time! Join us for a fun, moderately-paced social hike, starting in daylight and finishing before pitch-dark. We usually aren't disappointed in the changing light show.  We will stop at a viewpoint and all are invited (but not required) to bring snacks to share.

In October, we will look for fall colors while taking advantage of Daylight Savings time for longer hikes.  Conditions can vary (weather and trails) so I will wait to post details until a few days ahead of time.  UPDATE - snow is in the forcast!  We will evaluate conditions at the carpool location and decide where to go.

IF IT IS BLIZZARDING, I will cancel by noon on Thursday (to avoid impacts both on driving and on the trails).  ** UPDATE - TRIP IS CANCELLED! **

To better track participation, please register ahead of time for this trip but it is also OK to show up at the carpool location.

Come prepared for any weather with good footwear, rain jacket, headlamp or flashlight, and traction devices if trails may be icy.  Option for after-hike food and drink at a nearby restaurant.





Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
