Hike Mt. Falcon (East Entrance)

  • Apr 24, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's hike Mt. Falcon on the Turkey Trot Trail to the Castle Trail.  It's about 3 miles to the top of the hill and the picnic shelter.  We'll stop here for a few minutes then hike another .3 miles up Walker's Dream Trail to the Summer White House Site - a good place to take pictures and look out west at the peaks and east for miles and miles.  Then we'll head back down for a total round trip of roughly 6 miles.

Could possibly be some icy, slushy, muddy spots, so come prepared with gear.

Direction to the East access: Located at 3852 Vine Street in Morrison, CO  80465.

From Denver, take I-70 to the C-470 Exit.  Travel south on C-470 to the town of Morrison.  Go right into downtown Morrison on Main Street.  Go left at CO 8 at the end of Morrison town and travel 1.6 miles to Forest Avenue.  Turn right on Forest Avenue and follow the signs for Mount Falcon Open Space. Large parking lot with bathrooms.

Optional Refreshment after the hike at a nearby restaurant TBD.

See you there!

    One dog has a paw injury, so no dogs (from me) or "plus one."

    There will be an optional lunch following the hike at Morrison Inn for those that are interested.

    I'll be bringing a "plus one" and two leashed golden retrievers on this hike.

      OK I opened up the guest option. So others can invite a guess too! And dogs are welcome as well.
