Castle Rock State Park/Sanborn County Park - SUNDAY hike - ~20 miles

I haven't sorted out the details of the route yet but we'll visit some of the nicer trails in Castle Rock returning via Skyline trail and Summit Rock in Sanborn County Park, opposite HWY 35 from Castle Rock. Expect around 20 miles and some good climbs at our usual brisk pace (3- 3.5 mph). I know the area somewhat but I'm always good for at least one wrong turn somewhere along the way!

I will be traveling this week so may be slow to respond to any questions, but since I probably don't know the answers anyway don't worry about it too much.

I'll move people off the waitlist who I have hiked with before or who are known to other leaders, or if you can convince me that you regularly hike this distance, pace and elevation gain.

    A few random notes about the hike tomorrow:
    - Per the maps the route is 19.8 miles. There are a bunch of tricky trail intersections so we'll be sure to regroup at all junctions.
    - There should be water available at the trail camp at around mile 12.
    - Bring a drink/snack for optional post-hike happy hour.
