Thursday Night Hike - Mt. Falcon Lower Loop - Beginner (but still steep)

Mount Falcon Lower Loop

East Trailhead: 3852 Vine Street, Morrison
From State Highway 8, turn west on Forest Avenue and north on Vine Street.

Hike:  We will hike up Turkey Trot Trail and down Castle Trail for a nice short, but steep loop before heading to a late happy hour in Morrison.

Distance: 3 miles

Elevation Gain: Approx. 1,000 feet.  I can't find a published elevation gain for Turkey Trot, but 1,000 feet is my best guess having hiked it a number of times.  Please allow a reasonable margin of error. :)

Note: Bring a headlamp or flashlight along with rain gear as appropriate.  I am expecting that we will finish this hike around 7:45 p.m., but please be prepared. There are options to lengthen the hike if the group is interested which could result in us getting back after dark.

 

Apres Hike: T.B.D. in Morrison.  I am open to all suggestions as I am not super familiar with the Morrison establishments.

    Some Morrison happy hr establishment that could take 15 people- Morrison Inn (Mexican), Beso- I think it is more expensive than Morrison Inn. I don't think the new Vinny's bar is open yet
