Short evening hikes weekdays 5:30-7:30 PM

Meet in the first west parking lot at Red Rock Canyon from the Ridge Road and Highway 24 entrance at 5:30 PM this next Tuesday, April 22th.  Will determine the route (easy or intermediate) depending on group preference.   I will be standing next to the display signs west of this parking lot.   Will take suggestions for this and future hiking routes.

Future Hikes -

All evening hikes are approximate 2-4 miles round trip at approximate rate of 2 miles/hour.   Brief stops for views and photo ops but no extended rest periods due to timing.

Hikes are 1.5 - 2.5 hours weekday evenings at 5:30 PM - three favorite locations: Red Rock Canyon, Palmer Park or Santa Fe trail off Woodmen Road. Ute Valley Park off Rockrimmon after I scope it out or if anyone wants to suggest a specific route.

Will also post full moon hikes on weekdays starting at 6:30 PM.

    For those of you who were interested in a book club I've added it to the suggested meetup section. Enjoy this glorious sunny day.

    Hello all. So I was incorrect last night. It was a wild crocus not a balloonflower. The white flower looks to be a sand lily and the yellow flower, a hairy evening primrose.

      I did the same thing. And I sprained my ankle a while back and it still has it's good days and bad days. Yesturday was not a good day. It felt stiff and vulnerable...

    I just realized today is Earth Day, so that hike was a great homage to it!

    I won't be able to make it today, or at all this week, since I've started another part time job and we are launching this week, so I have some events to help with. I do look forward to going on as many of these walks as possible!

    Vikki is correct - Tuesday the 22nd is the first hike.
    I do short evening hikes just about every day Mon-Friday this time of year and would welcome the company. A future goal is to complete a 3-4 hour hike in the back country of Red Rock Canyon.

      I, like Jennifer, do the Quinn on Tuesday nights, so I am out. But, if you post on other nights, I will make what I can.

    Wanted to give everyone who enjoys this place as much as I do not to leave any valuables in their car even if you hide them. My daughters car was recently vandalized on a Sat. at 3 in the afternoon and her purse was hidden under the car mat and it was stolen and nothing else was in sight.

  • Jennifer

    This is the same day as the jack quinns 5k running club. Otherwise i'd be in :)

    I'm confused. The hike is on the 22nd? Or every weekday?

    April 8

    • Vikki W.

      Lorinda, I think El (correct me if I'm wrong El) is starting it on the 22nd. Then from that point it will be a weekly thing. Hope you're doing well chica.

    I'll be there unless we get another crazy weather day!
