101 Chicago Creek Road, Idaho Springs , CO
Adventurous hikers only!
Address: 4655 Ward Rd., Wheat Ridge
Directions to the park-n-ride: From 44th Ave. & Ward Rd., continue north on Ward Rd. approximately .22 miles, left into the park-n-Ride. We will plan on leaving this park-n-ride at 5:00 am.
If you are going West on I-70 take the Ward Rd. exit and go straight through the stop light (do not turn left or right) at the bottom and into the PnR.
The 'hike': It is 2.6 miles up the trail to the ridge. But this is a cul-de-sack and I want to know if we can, after getting up onto the ridge, go around it and decend from the trail on the left of it. I know the trail down from the left is there. You can see it. If there is a trail around the cul-de-sack it isn't on any maps that I have seen. There are a number of rock outcroopings we'll have to get through. If at any point things get too risky we'll just turn around and go back the way we came.
This 'hike' is for adventuours hikers only.
But is should be great fun.
