Details

Let’s hike to the Cheyenne Mountain Club’s cabin site in South Cheyenne Canyon.  This is where it all began for the Pikes Peak Group.  Where students from the Cheyenne Mountain High School would go for weekend retreats.  Dr. Lloyd Shaw would call the Jr and Sr classes into the auditorium.  He told them they had 30 minutes to go home, pack a lunch and be back at the school for a hike to the cabin.  They would hike up the stairs at Seven Falls and follow the trail to the cabin.  The Cheyenne Mtn Club joined the Colo Mtn Club on May 6, 1919 thus making this year our 100th B'day.



 



We will hike up the Daniels Pass Trail and on to the Gold Camp train right of way.  There’s not much left of the cabin but the sight over looking the canyon and creek is idyllic.
