Come and enjoin a lovely hike at my favorite place in Colorado: Cherry Creek State Park! This hike is rated easy and will be around 5 miles in length and will cut through wetlands, beaches, and woodlands. Stay after the hike and enjoy your packed lunch at the shoreline. Please be advised that this is a state park so there is a $9 fee to enter; I highly encourage people to carpool.
Directions and map: One mile south of I-225 on Parker Road at Lehigh, adjacent to south Denver. Located at 4201 S. Parker Road, Aurora, CO 80014
We will be meeting at the Shop Creek Parking Area located between #17 and #13 on the map off of E. Lake View Rd. Please be advised that there are no amenities at this parking area though there are many scattered throughout the park. Also, please note that I do not have a cell phone, so if you have any questions or concerns about the hike or need to cancel then please contact me before 7:30am Sunday the 23rd.
This is a snow or shine hike meaning we will meet regardless of weather conditions unless those weather conditions are extremely hazardous i.e. blizzard. Since this is the case please remember to bring the following:
• Warm winter clothes (think wool and synthetics; not cotton) and boots
• Plenty of water
• Optional: thermos with hot cocoa, coffee or tea; camera; snowshoes
Hope to see you on the trail!
