Carpool Location: Table Mesa Shopping Center, meet at the bench in front of Art Cleaners (lower level facing Table Mesa Dr, between Elevations Credit Union and Tsing Tao next to the Snarf's playground) by 2:00 PM.   Table  Mesa Shopping Center is on the SW corner of Table Mesa and Broadway.

Trailhead LocationTBD - I am watching for how the trails melt out, bur probably will be a figure 8 around Shanahan Ridge for approx 5 miles - bring traction devices as it will likely be icy/snow-packed in shady areas.  It will be getting dark by 5:00, when Tsing Tao opens for their pre-Thanksgiving Day buffet!

** we ended up doing exactly 5 miles from the Greenbriar TH - up the N. Shanahan trail to the Fern Canyon junction, then north on the Fern Canyon trail to the Mesa Trail south to the S. Shanahan trail, then the cut-over back to the N. Shanahan trail and TH.


For more info Contact

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


Join us for a fun, moderately paced afternoon social hike - for our annual day-before-Thanksgiving hike we will start earlier to be albe to hike longer to get us ready for Turkey Day!  I will choose the hike by the weekend before, based on weather forecast and trail conditions.

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

Come prepared for any weather with good footwear, rain jacket, headlamp or flashlight.  Some will bring snacks to share during the hike, plus option for after-hike food and drink at a nearby restaurant.





Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
