Sleep-in Saturday hike - Woods Quarry (Boulder)

  • Dec 28, 2013 · 10:30 AM

Sleep in a bit, then join us for a hike past the scenic flatirons, through the forest to Woods Quarry. This is an interesting place you have to see for yourself. It's an area of rock benches with a view of the front range. (Read about the hike, from the other direction, here.)

Timing: Meet at 10:20am, we'll start at 10:30am. Bring a snack to enjoy at Woods Quarry. After the hike, the group may want to talk about lunch (I already have plans.)

Distance: Expect a hike of about 4 miles. If you want more, I'll have some ideas.

Elevation gain: Maybe 600 feet?

Pace: Expect a moderate pace, not too fast, but not slow.

Dogs: Allowed on leash

Donation: $1 ($0 if unemployed)

Location: Meet at NCAR near the entrance to the parking lot. Google: 1850 Table Mesa Dr, Boulder, CO ‎for directions.

    Anyone bringing a canine companion Saturday? This is my first outing with Trail Heads and my Bedlington Terrier Forrest wants to know if he would have any four-footed friends. We played with a herd of 100+ elk in Golden Gate Canyon SP Wednesday!
