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 8:45 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. Headed West, as soon as you exit the Eisenhower tunnel (the very long tunnel just west of exit 216) the very large parking lot will be on your right. Drive right into it. Hiker's parking will be on your right. There are signs marking it.
The 'hike': The first half mile or so is up hill. After the first switchback it gets a lot easier. If we get all the way up onto the ridge we'll run into the Loveland ski lifts. This is an out and back hike so we can go as far as we like and turn around.
Dogs are welcome.
