This hike has great views in all directions, and will be ideal for watching the sunset (6:26pm) in the west and the full moon rise (6:30pm) in the east. We'll hike for about 1-1/2 hours—I'm guessing about 3 miles with up to 800' of elevation gain. Afterwards, those interested will go to dinner at D'Corazon Mexican Restaurant in Lakewood.
Please note the details about bringing appropriate gear and in case of bad weather in this Meetup Group's Welcome description. In particular, be sure to bring a headlamp and rain gear. Dogs are welcome on this hike (but not at the restaurant afterward)—they must be on a leash and you must pick up after them. If you join this hike, you are agreeing to this waiver.
Directions: We're meeting at the Stegosaurus Lot at the southeast corner of I70/Hwy 26 on the west side of the hogback in Morrison. Click here for a map with directions. Hwy 26 is the first exit from I70 ("Morrison" exit) west of C470. Note: Another trailhead for this hike is off of Rooney Road on the east side of the hogback--we are not meeting there.
