Happy Hour in the Hills -Windy Saddle Park

What better way to celebrate summer than by spending your Friday evenings hiking the foothills instead of being stuck in some bar? We'll spend each Friday (June-July) out in the foothills on short hikes that average around 5 miles round-trip. This hike is just under 5 miles round-trip with an elevation gain of 290 feet.  This hike is rated moderate because the trail requires us to climb through some boulders and cross talus fields.  We will have several stops so that we can chat and get to know one another because it IS happy hour after all!  For more information and to register, contact Colleen Finnerty at [masked] or email me at [masked] by 10am June 27th.
All participants must sign a waiver in order to go on this hike. These hikes are for adults only with no dogs.  Remember that it is summer so it will be hot and sunny; bring plenty of water, sunscreen and a hat.  You may also want to bring something to eat since we will be out hiking at dinnertime.

    Ellen and Everyone Else, Here is the site for the park http://jeffco.us/parks/parks-and-trails/windy-saddle-park/ w/ directions and park map. We will meet at the Windy Saddle parking lot and head down the Beaver Brook Trail. This is a reminder to everyone to please make sure you're receiving these notifications and your Meetup emails in case there is a cancellation or a change in venue like last week. This trail requires some light bouldering and crosses through talus fields. Let me know if you have any questions.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
