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 9:00 am.
Directions to the trailhead: Go West on I-70. Take exit 238. Pull into a parking lot on the left 6.8 miles up the road.
The hike: This hike is along a road. It follows Fall River up a valley. It's 3 miles out and three miles back with an elevation gain of 1230 feet. So it's gradually uphill but not bad. Elevation is 10,810 at the lake. We plan to start this hike around 10:00.
You may bring your dog.
