Thanksgiving always falls on the 4th Thursday in November! That's usually our hiking day, so instead we'll hike this easy/moderate 5+ mile hike at Mathews/Winters Open Space Park with less than 600 feet of elevation gain on Friday! Village Walk to Red Rocks Trail to Morrison Slide and back on the Red Rocks Trail - easy close-in hike!

Directions to Matthews/Winters Park: From I-70 or US Highway 40, go south on Colorado Highway 26 approximately 0.1 mile and turn at the park entrance.

Optional Refreshment after the hike.

See you there!

      I don't check out the trail beforehand, so I'm guessing since this is an exposed foothill trail im guessing there might have patches of ice and snow. Always have your micro spikes with you!

      I was at Chimney Gulch on Monday and found the conditions to be exactly as Debbie describes. There could be a bit of ice in the areas that don't get direct sunlight.
