Body Mindfulness Hike

This is an out-and-back hike of 5.2 miles round trip. It's moderately strenuous because of the overall elevation gain and the distance. The trail winds through meadows, ponderosas, and at certain points parallels a creek. The trail will probably be icy, muddy or snowpacked this time of year so equip yourself accordingly. At the turnaround point, where we will take a break and "check-in" with our bodies, there's views of the Divide and the snow-capped Indian Peaks.

During this hike I encourage you to really pay attention to your bodies. Where do you feel tension? How much energy do you have? What are the signs your body is sending you that you persistently ignore and why? And most of all, how does your body feel in nature?

We'll be hiking mostly in silence except for some discussion times and the last 15 min. of the hike. I estimate this to be a 3 hour hike total, more or less.

DIRECTIONS to trailhead: To get to the Meyers Gulch Trailhead from Boulder, take Baseline Road (west) past Chautaugua Park and up the steep and windy Flagstaff Road for approximately 7 miles. The trailhead will be on your right. If you get to the Walker Ranch Trailhead, you have gone about .5 miles too far.  There is plenty of parking, and restrooms are available at the trailhead. We'll meet at the southern lot at the trail kiosk.

DONATION: I'm asking for a $2 suggested donation to offset the cost of MeetUp organizer fees and gas.

CANCELLATIONS: In case of cancellation of this hike, please check this website. Call or text me if you need to change your RSVP to "no" at the last minute at 303.596.7230.

A minimum of 4 RSVPs (including me) are needed for this hike to happen.

NOTE: As always, discounted copies of my book "Contemplative Hiking Along the Colorado Front Range" will be available for $15 (regular price is 19.99). See www.ContemplativeHiking.com for more info.

    Hey everyone, I will be carpooling with Judith, who has a teal truck, so look for that vehicle at the trailhead instead of the dark blue VW. Call or text if anything comes up[masked]

    Margaret,
    Great! Without rushing, we should arrive at the trailhead at 10 AM. I drive a dark, teal-colored Toyota with a camper shell on the back.

    I can offer to carpool with one person (I have a truck) up Flagstaff Road; I'm very familiar with the drive. We can meet at the Ranger Cottage in Chautauqua Park at 9:20 AM. Any takers?

      Hi Judith, I am interested, but I'd like to meet you at 9:30 if that's OK. It will only take less than 30 minutes to get up to the trailhead from Chautauqua, right? What color is your truck? I'll be driving a dark blue VW.
