Full Moon Hike

  • to
  • MEET: C-470 & Morrison park-n-ride

    3485 S Rooney Rd, Morrison, CO (map)

    39.653137 -105.183395

  • It is the first right coming off of C470 heading into Morrison, then the park-n-ride is the first right across the street from Conoco.
  • Usually I prefer to do this on a Saturday night however I thought it would be a nice way to break up the week and a wonderful way to welcome the start of Spring this year!

    I am planning to leave the Morrison Park-n-ride by 7:00 to go to the trailhead. Please be there by 6:45 to get car pooling organized to head over. The full moon is scheduled to rise at 8:05 and I would like to be up on the plateau in plenty of time to watch it rise. It is beautiful from where we will be located with a spectacular view of Denver.

    Your welcome to bring various wines to taste while we watch the moon rise. If you bring a bottle of wine please bring an opener and be willing to share with everyone. Anyone wanting to taste the wine please bring a cup in which to pour your wine in.

    Difficulty: Moderate
    Length: 3-mile loop

    Optional to bring:
    a windbreaker or rain jacket, water, wine & a cup to drink from and a camera.  Snacks are welcome and please bring a bag to take all your trash back down the hill.

    ***Please remember to bring a light for the trail down as it will only be lit by the light of the silvery moon!

    From C-470 & Morrison Rd., continue west on Morrison Rd. (County Rd. 93), to Rooney Rd., right on Rooney Rd., right into park-n-Ride.  It is the first right coming off of C470 heading into Morrison, then the park-n-ride is the first right across the street from Conoco.

    For anyone that cannot make this one I will put on a couple more later this year so keep your eyes open. Please be kind as this is a popular hike and if you cannot make it change your RSVP so others on the wait list can go.   I am opening this hike to an additional 10 people on the wait list.  I would like a volunteer to bring up the rear going up the trail to account for everyone going on the hike.  If you need to reach me before the hike my cell # is[masked], please call me after 5pm as this doubles as my work phone!

    My daughter is in town this week, and these appear to be adult only events, so we'll pass this one up. It looks like a grand hike though.

    The updated forecast is looking good for Wed night :-) still would recommend a rain jacket just in case. I may be at the park-n-ride a little early depending on traffic.

    Looks like we may have some rainy weather the day of this hike. I have gone before with it raining and caught a spectacular view of the Moon through the clouds. Unless it is pouring down all overcast I still plan to lead this. For everyone I thought I would post this note letting you know that I still plan to go (I love the rain, not a downpour though) and mention to please remember to bring a rain jacket....
