Garden of the Gods Hike

Hi hikers, Doris Drisgill [masked]) will be leading this hike.

For the 11/4 hike we'll meet at 9 am at the parking lot west of the GoG Trading Post, on the west side of Beckers Lane. We'll be on trail sometimes, on Rampart Range Rd. sometimes, and bushwhacking part of the time. My guess for the length of the hike is 5-6 mi. I consider it a moderate hike-- the bushwhacking will be mostly following old, overgrown trails.
Directions to trailhead: either go thru GoG to the Trading Post on the west side (just east of Balanced Rock), or take Colo. Ave west into Manitou and turn right on Beckers Lane -- a stop light just past Park Row Lodge.

Rampart Range Rd is closed to vehicles since the fire, but that shouldn't prevent us from hiking up that way for a mile or so; we'll go nowhere near the burned area.  And we'll get some spectacular views.

DON'T FORGET TO SET YOUR CLOCKS BACK ON SATURDAY NIGHT!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
