Sleep-in, then let's explore South Table Mountain.
Directions: We'll meet at NREL in Golden. Exit I-70 at Denver West Boulevard and travel North to Denver West Parkway. Turn left (West) and you'll be headed directly for NREL. First person there, put a backpack on your hood or trunk so others can find you. (Google: 15013 Denver West Parkway for directions)
Distance: I don't know how many trails there are and how well they are marked, but I'm hoping to hike about 75-90 minutes out and the same back. Expect about 5-7 miles with about 750 feet of elev. gain.
Timing: Meet at 10:30, we'll start at 10:40. (Be prepared, if there is an issue with this parking lot, we'll drive to a second one.) Bring water and a snack. We'll finish around 130pm if anyone wants to go to lunch at Smashburger (2.5 miles away) at I-70 and Youngfield.
