Mid Week Afternoon Hike Red Rocks Trail

Let's do a different hike and at a different time. Red Rocks at Pearl and Canyon. Guessing it will be easier than the last group of hikes. It's less than 2 miles round trip.

A little History

Settlers' Park got its name because it was thought to be the location of the first permanent camp of American settlers in the Boulder area. The group pitched their tents at the base of the sheltering Red Rocks on Oct. 17, 1858. A group of about 24 men heading toward Cherry Creek-Auraria gold strikes broke away from their wagon train because one of their members, Captain Thomas Aikins, thought that the "mountain looked right for gold" in the foothills west of the Boulder area. Red Rocks was purchased in 1920 and 1926.

We will loop around and then steeply hike up to Anemone. Then come back down.

Hope to see you there!
