Hi Secular Hikers,
Weather permitting; there will be a hike on Sunday, March 17th on Templeton Gap Trail. We will meet at the parking lot just south of an outhouse (closed in winter) located at 3650 Mark Dabling Blvd. (Yes the address is on the small building.) It is 0.7 miles north of Fillmore St. and 0.9 miles south of Garden of the Gods Rd. on the west side of the street. We will head south on the Front Range Trail for a short distance to the Templeton Gap Trail then head east towards Palmer Park.
Depending on the weather and the desires of the group, we will probably be stopping for a light lunch after we reach Palmer Park. The total elevation gain is about 200 to 300 feet. We will be returning the way we came. The total distance hiked will be about 6 to 7 miles. I consider this hike a relatively easy hike. The hike will start at 10:00 AM. We will be back to our cars by mid afternoon. If anyone needs to get back earlier, they can return to their cars on their own or in small groups.
Please bring enough water and snacks on the hike. Also, bring a rain coat if there is a chance of rain.
Please let me know if you plan on attending the hike. If you change your mind, please let me know that also.
