Hike from NCAR (National Center for Atmospheric Research)

  • Nov 23, 2012 · 9:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

THE TRAIL:

We will be doing the Mallory Cave trail and then a bit of Mesa Trail to Woods Quarry. Then back to trailhead at NCAR. I don't have exact distance and elevation, so here are my estimates;

Starting elevation: 6,080'

Ending Elevation: 7,000' estimated
Elevation Change: 1,102' estimated
Difficulty: Easy/Intermediate
Tota l hiking time: About 3 hours
Round Trip Length: About 5 miles

THE APRES Hike:

My guess on timing for lunch is approximately 1pm

We will meet at Southern Sun, just down the road from NCAR for food and beer!!

*** Southern Sun does not take credit cards, so bring cash!!!***

NOTES (PLEASE READ!!):

1) PLEASE READ, UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO OUR GENERAL RULES, PHILOSIPHY AND LIABILITY WAIVER ON THE MAIN PAGE

2) ** This is lower altitude, but please be ready for any kind of weather as this is late Fall. **

3) Bring extra water, as high elevations dehydrate the body at a faster rate.

4) Please remember that mountain hiking might mean that we end up spreading out according to our pace and fitness levels. If you do split off ahead from the group, please wait at the summit for most of the members to arrive. If you can not complete the hike and need to turn back, please inform your organizer that you are leaving.

    Had a lot of fun with a bunch of nice people on a gorgeous Colorado day! I wish I could have stayed longer to make it Trails and Ales instead of Trails and Ale...

    How does the wait list work......? Do I need to get approved or can I just show up:)

      I have manually added the four waiting. It is not good to just show up as certain hikes only allow so many participants. Also, certain venues can only accomodate so many until they are in violation of fire ordinances.
