Twin Eagles Trailhead parking area.  We will begin hiking around 2pm and finish by 1p on Sunday.

Time to dust off your backpacking gear and start training for this summer’s epic adventures.  This will be a 6.1 mile casually-paced hike.  We will travel and take breaks as a group.  The plan is to hike in and set up camp.  Then, participants can decide to explore further along the Brookside McCurdy Trail or rest in camp.  The hike out in the morning will be along the Lizard Rock Trail with opportunities for photos among the distinctive rock formations.   

When you register for this trip, please email the leader with your backpacking experience, fitness level and any medical conditions you may have.  Your registration will not be finalized until this information has been received.

Priority will be given to Pikes Peak group members.
