Dayhike Coon Hill...and a lot more.

  • Arapaho National Forest

    101 Chicago Creek Road, Idaho Springs , CO (map)

    39.739738 -105.521652

  • I'll meet you at the PnR.
  • Adventurous hikers only! 

    Ward Road 

    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.

    I'd like to join this hike but I'm not sure I'm strong enough. What is an adventurous hike?

    I'm not going to be able to make this one. I'll keep my out for future trips!

    I was hoping it was a typo and someone would update to 8am:+)

    The early start is because once we gain the ridge there is no trail around to the other side. We'll be finding our way around if it's even possible.

    I was interested until I saw the time you plan to meet! Why so incredibly early?

    I probably shouldn't be too adventurous.
