Full Moon Hike

Let's do a full moon hike!

This Friday, August 23, at Spruce Mt Trail between Larkspur and Palmer Lake.

We'll meet at the Target on Lincoln off I-25 at 7:30 p.m. and plan to leave by 7:45. Look for us on the upper level in the Soutwest corner. I will be in a black Jeep Patriot. If you are meeting us at the trailhead we plan to be there by 8:30. Well behaved dogs are welcome.

Sunset is 7:44 and moonrise is at 9:06. It's a short hike (about 3 miles roundtrip), but beautiful at the top. Please bring a headlamp and/or flashlight as we will be  hiking in the dark for part of this hike.


Kris Brown is our coordinator and hostess. She can be reached via this site.

    Thanks to everyone who came on this hike with me. God showed up and took my breath away again with His beautiful creation. I enjoyed meeting everyone and sharing this unforgettable event. Thanks Johnny and Ron for your kind comments.

      Coming up from Colorado Springs, here are the directions:
      1. Go north on I-25.
      2. Get off at Monument - take Hwy 105 toward Palmer Lake.
      3. At Palmer Lake, take Spruce Mountain Road (not Hwy 105)
      4. Go North on Spruce Mountain Road for approx. 5-6 miles.
      5. Parking lot is on the left side - Spruce Mt Open Space Trailhead.

    Hi Kris, well I was just going to ask you what your "gut" was telling you about the weather possibilities. But see your note - sounds like a pretty good plan to see what's happening at the Target store. It was some Major amount of hail last night at my place (by the foothills - Ken Caryl Ave & C470) would not of been fun to be caught out in the open in it! :)

    I checked the weather and it lookslike isolated thunderstorms so if it's raining at the Target meeting place at 7:30 then we will cancel. Won't be able to see the moon come up because of cloud cover. You can contact me at[masked] if you have any questions. Hope to see you tomorrow.

    If you come down County Line west toward Palmer Lake when you cross the RR tracks turn right at the stop sign and head toward Larkspur. The parking lot is on the left off that road before you get to Noe road intersection. We will meet at the trailhead at 830.

    Are you referring to county line road at monument hill?

    I meant the trailhead. My phone likes to embarrass me by creating weird typos. I'm used to it.

    Just wanted to clarify where the radiohead is for those who will be meeting us there. The entrance to the parking lot is on the road between Larkspur and Palmer Lake and at the top of the hill. Any questions feel freer to contact me. My cell is[masked]

    Joanne sorry you can't make it. Please be sure to go in and change your RSVP. Thanks.

    Hi, Kris - Since I'll be coming up from Colorado Springs, what time should I meet you at the trailhead?

    August 20, 2013

      Okay Joanne, I'll be in touch. The only thing that would prevent me from coming is if my knee acts at up, otherwise I'll see you there probably at 745 or 8, depending on the meet-up time at TH.

      August 20, 2013

    • Joanne

      I've decided I need to cancel after all as I'm going on a hike in Denver the next day and it just may be a bit late in getting home - Thanks anyway, and hopefully can do so another time -
