Hi Hiking Freethinkers,
Weather permitting; there will be a hike on Sunday, Dec. 2nd. There will be 2 hikes from which to choose.
Hike 1) Greenland Open Space Loop. It is a relatively easy 8 1/2 mile hike north of the town of Palmer Lake with little elevation gain.
Hike 2) Columbine Trail, which starts from the Starsmore Center and heads west towards Helen Hunt Falls in Cheyenne Canyon. I consider this an intermediate level hike, with 6.52 miles round-trip distance. The max. elevation is 7368 ft., min. elevation is 6298 ft., elevation gain 1070 ft. (not counting the ups and downs of 100 to 200 ft. each, about 3 of them).
p.s. If you vote for a hike and that is the one selected, you are expected to attend. If you do not, your vote will count less in the future.
