I moved to Colorado a few years ago from the Chicago suburbs and I found myself wanting to go to more meetups but not finding availability. I would like to do activities where people can get to know each other such as potlucks, game nights, bowling, eating out and moderate hikes.
Let's hike the Rawhide Trail which is a 5 mile loop without a lot of elevation gain. It will be an at your own pace hike.
Leashed pets are welcome.
Drive to White Ranch Park's WEST trailhead.
We'll start hiking at 10:10am.
If anyone wants to eat lunch there after we're done just bring your lunch --I will too (unless it's inclement by that time).
Carpooling: I'll be at the Ward Road Park-n-Ride at 9:15 and will wait until 9:25 for any interested in carpooling. I'll have a meetup sign on. Also I drive a silver Hyundai Elantra.

Get to Golden, going north from Highway 58 and 6th Avenue. Go 1.4 miles from the intersection where 93 starts, to the light at Golden Gate Canyon Road - make a left. Go up 3.9 miles to a right on Crawford Gulch Road, another 3.9 miles to a right on the romantically-named Belcher Hill Road, just past the fire station - go 1.8 miles (past the 10-car parking lot), and the big parking lot is on your left near the end of the road.
If the weather is bad, this event will be rescheduled.
