Time for another series of four weekday hikes, this time on Tuesday evenings. These hikes will be self paced. Hike the whole trial or just a portion and don't be afraid to show up late (if you have work issues) and meet us on the trail.. If you are beginning or sustaining a hiking or backpacking conditioning program, these hikes are for you.
Hike Serpent’s Trail
Blah, blah, blah - a standard picture of Serpent's Trail. It's going to be "Africa Hot" so bring water and sunscreen.
Serpents Trail is approximately I 3.5 miles roundtrip, (1.75 miles uphill to the turn around point and 1.75 miles return on the same trail).
We will meet across the road from the Devil’s Kitchen Picnic Area at the Serpents Trail parking lot. It is located just inside of the East entrance of the Monument, on the left side of the road.
From Dos Hombres on Broadway, take Monument Road South for 4.3 miles to the parking area.
Running Shoes, Hiking Shoes or Hiking Boots.
Trekking poles (if you like - not requred)
You are welcome to bring a pack stuffed with extra weight if you are training for other events/adventures this summer.
If you drive you may need to pay the $10 NPS entrance fee. I will be willing to pick one or two people up at the Tabeguache Trailhead if you don't have a National Parks or Colorado Monument card.
Hounds are not allowed in the Monument
