Subject: [hiking-381] New Meetup: Eldorado Canyon Trail - near Boulder

Announcing a new Meetup for The Longmont Hiking Meetup Group!

What: Eldorado Canyon Trail - near Boulder<http://www.meetup...;­

When: Sunday, November 14,[masked]:00 AM

Price: $1.00 per person

Where: Doudy Draw Trailhead
El Dorado Drive
Boulder, CO 80020

This trail is located in Eldorado Canyon State Park in Eldorado Springs (view here)<http://parks.stat...;­

Distance: approximately 7 1/2 miles
Elevation gain: about 1000 ft
Difficulty: moderate
Time: 10am carpool location, hike starts approx 10:30am in park
Dogs: Allowed on leash
Entrance Fee: $6 (carpoolers will share cost)

Since the park requires a $6 entrance fee let's meet at 10:00am at the Dowdy Draw trailhead and carpool from there. If you are late plan to catch up and meet us on the trail. Directions are as follows: Follow Broadway south out of Boulder (this becomes S. Foothills Hwy). Turn right on Eldorado Springs Drive and the trailhead will be 1.7 miles on the left.

They are talking about the possibility of snow, but we should be able to do this hike regardless of the weather. If it decides to rain instead, we may postpone it for another day. Otherwise...this trail climbs up the side of the canyon, then drops down into Walker Ranch. At Walker Ranch, we can hike over to the river and the waterfall for a snack, then hike back.

For those meeting us at the trailhead: We will begin hiking at 10:30. Take Colorado 93 south from Boulder. Turn right on Colorado 170 and continue to the park entrance west of Eldorado Springs, about eight miles southwest of Boulder. Please note in your rsvp if you are meeting us here.

Please hike responsibly. By signing up for this hike you acknowledge that you are solely responsible for your own safety and will do the necessary research to understand the conditions of this hike and the gear you require.

A $1.00 donation is requested to cover the costs of the Meetup site.
