FOR CMC ROCKY MOUNTAIN OVER THE HILL GANG (RMOTHG) MEMBERS ONLY.



We will strat on the Elkhorn Trail for about .3 miles, connect to Oxen Draw Trail (.6  miles.), cross over on Raven Roost Trail (.3 miles) with nice views.  Then we will connect to Eagles View Trail counter clockwise for 2.3 miles. The loop is very nice and trail is excellent. Finish up hike  on Oxen Draw ( .6 miles) and return on other Elkhorn trail .2 miles to cars.  Signage on trails is very good!


 


This is a 5 mile, moderate A, casual pace hike for enjoying scenery,  This rocky trail in interesting, diverse terrain goes UP (not a bad UP but UP) beside a lively creek. Great view of Pike's Peak. We'll walk along a ridge with more fine views, eat lunch with Pike's Peak facing us. Reynolds usually abounds in spring flowers, so we'll hope some appear for us.
