Let's stretch our legs after work, and go for late hike. Royal Arch is one of my favorite hikes in Chautauqua Park, beautiful challenging short hike (3.75 miles out and back, with 1380 feet of elevation). https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/colorado/royal-arch-trail Bring water and your MASK. Bad weather postpone.
THIS IS A STRENUOUS HIKE!! Join us for a hike of Pettingell Peak, a 13er near I-70 before the Tunnel. Pettingell is notable only for being the highest point in Clear Creek County. On our way up, we'll pass by Herman Lake, a pretty lake. It's a class 2 to get to the summit with no exposure. The total distance is roughly 8.5 miles RT and about 3200' of gain. Meet at the Herman Gulch Trailhead (I70 exit 218) at 7am. Trip route: https://www.alltrails.com/explore/recording/pettingel-peak-herman-lake Bad weather i.e. snow or rain-storms or high winds cancel.
Located near Georgetown CO, Mt Edwards is among the highest 100 mountains in Colorado. Let's go out an explore. Edwards by itself is around 8 miles RT with about 2800' of gain. We may possibly tack on other high 13ers in the vicinity depending on how we feel. https://www.alltrails.com/explore/trail/us/colorado/mount-edwards--2?mobileMap=false&ref=sidebar-static-map&ref=sidebar-view-full-map Meet at carpool spot at 6am. Bad weather i.e. snow or rain-storms or high winds cancel.
Grizzly Peak A is the highest 13er in Colorado. It stands at 13,988', just barely shy of 14er designation. This is a typical Sawatch class 2+ hike with lots of scree, airy ridges and gorgeous views without the crowds you get on 14ers. Do the lollipop loop described below. Total distance 7.3 miles / 2900' gain. https://www.hikingproject.com/trail/7036364/grizzly-peak-and-garfield-peak Meet at carpool spot at 6am.
