9 people went

Details

The Details: This is the final hike in our "Trail Thursdays" series. The Liberty Cap hike from the Wildwood Trailhead is one of the inconic Grand Junction hikes featuring an interesting and moderately demanding trail, beautiful views and the chance to either push yourself or have a slower paced and more social hike. From the trailhead to the top of the cap is approximately two miles one way and four miles round trip.

As with all of our Trail Thursday hikes, this is a self paced conditioning hike. The start time will be 6:30 which should give most people the chance to get off of work and get to the trailhead in a low stress fashion, but - feel free to show up early or show up late, hike as little or as much of the trail as you wish at whatever pace (fast or slow) you choose. If you are beginning or sustaining a backpacking or hiking conditioning program, this hike is for you.
