Announcing a new Meetup for Colorado Dog Friends Adventure Group!
What: Elk Meadows Loop Hike - Evergreen
When: Saturday, May 22,[masked]:00 AM
Elk Meadow upper lot
Evergreen, CO 80439
Meetup Place: Elk Meadows trailhead parking lot off of Stagecoach BlvdNOTE: This is not the same as the trailhead off Lewis Ridge Road.
The Elk Meadows Loop is located near Evergreen, inside the Elk Meadows open space. The hike is about 5 miles, with only a slight elevation gain of about 300 feet. It is an easy to moderate hike with an average grade of 3% thru a mix of meadows and pines.
Remember, we will be starting at the upper trail head, off of Stagecoach Boulevard. Stagecoach Boulevard intersects with Evergreen Parkway about 2 miles north of Evergreen and about 4 miles south of Bergen Park. There is a closed Albertson's store on the Northwest corner of the intersection. Go west on Stagecoach for about 1.5 miles to the trail head parking lot. Meet by the maps, signs, etc at the trail head. Plan for a 10am meet time.
Dogs are required to be on leash, but there is an excellent off leash dog park just across the road from the trail head parking lot for those dogs with extra energy remaining after the hike. Bring plenty of water as well as there is none at the trail head.
