Dayhike the Beaver Brook Trail- West end.

Folks this is the best time to hike along I-70. The skiers aren't out in force yet. Plus I'm trying to stay out of the mud this weekend.

Ward Road PnR

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 9:20 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.

Directions to the trailhead: Go West on I-70 about seven miles after entering the foothills and take exit #253. Turn right and then turn right again onto Stapleton Drive. This has nothing to do with the old airport. The trailhead is about 1.3 miles ahead.

The hike: This hike is a loop of about five miles. There is some elevation gain. I'd rate it as easy to moderate. We'll start this hike at 10:00. We should be done between 12:30 and 1:00. The Broncos play Sunday night so that's not a problem.

Dogs are allowed.

    Sure. As long as everyone can meet along 470, it'll be easy to pick you up.

      Swing off the highway and pick me up at this parking lot by the Chilis on Kipling would be good. https://maps.google.co...­

    This is my first hike with this group. Is the park n ride just an option or is that where everyone is meeting? Or can I just head directly to the Beaver Brook Trail-West end. Where do people meet if I go directly to the trail. Just a Newbe........

    Though the hike is full I would like to offer anyone a ride from the Ward Rd PnR to the trailhead. I injured my knee a few weeks ago and had knee surgery last Friday but I've been cooped up for three weeks and need to get away for a few hours. I love this trail alot but I won't be hiking but working on my photography

    Josh, it will take about 25 minutes from picking up Adam to get to the park/ride so we could even meet a bit later but whatever works for you. I will text you in the a.m. thanks.

    Both of those would be fine. I'm thinking around 8:15 and 8:30 for the two stops. Text me so we can communicate in the morning. [masked]
