    HIKE IS CANCELED! After my training today, I went to Reynolds park to do the hike (make sure trails are safe etc) and the trails are 55% dirt, 30% ICE, and 15% mud. It is obviously that ice component that is the concern. Even on areas of the trail that had no grade, I still almost slipped and fell several times. This hike is impossible to do safely without ice clamps. I am SO sorry that the trail in unsafe and therefore impassable (I do not have ice clamps and I'm sure many of you do not either). Try to spend the day outside in a park though because it is going to be beautiful tomorrow.

    Maybe a good place to carpool from would be from Morrison (Hogback Park-n-Ride - Located off I-70 at exit 259 to Morrison, US 40

    or at the US 285 and Twin Forks PnR Address: 6164 US Hwy 285, Morrison, Location: US 285 @ Lindburg, just after the exit for Tiny Town.
