Our Summer Series continue with a hike!
For those who are interested, there is a great little Mexican restaurant called Lucha with a patio on a lake nearby for after the hike. Family friendly so bring the kids!
*Because of the wildlife dogs are not allowed in the Park.*
Rain date will be the following Sunday, June 11th.
Onto the hike:
The Fountain Valley Trail is a 2.3 mile loop that winds through the Fountain and Lyons rock formations with a moderate change in elevation. This self-guided hike takes you through some of the most magnificent land in the park. The trail winds through several different habitats for plants and animals, including mule deer, fox and a variety of birds. You may see a golden eagle soaring over the hogback hunting small mammals, snakes or birds. At the top of the loop are buildings built by Henry S. Persse at the turn of the century. Persse used Roxborough as a summer home and hoped to develop the land into a resort. Hiking time is approximately one and one-half to two hours. (edited)
