We will be taking the Staunton State Park trail up to the Old Mill. This starts out as fairly gentle trail through the meadows and aspen groves then a steep incline for a mile up to the Old Mill. We will stop there for a snack/lunch then head back down. Hopefully the aspen will be changing then. The hike is 6.5 miles round trip. We will be walking at a moderate pace but can stop to take pictures of aspen.   We will need cars who have a state parks pass or you will divide the $7 fee amongst your passengers. 

We will meet at the parking lot across from the Phillips 66 at the Morrison Exit off of C470 at 7:30 AM. That means we will be leaving at 7:30 AM SHARP.  If you have a state parks pass please consider driving. Please bring cash to pay your driver. 

Directions to the State park:Get back on C470 going south and take the next exit for Hwy 285 towards Fairplay (south). Go to Shaffers Crossing, about 6 miles west of Conifer. Exit there and go north on Elk Creek Rd. and follow signs 1.5 miles to the park entrance. We will park in the main parking lot by the big pavillon.
