The Bangs Canyon Staging Area is located just off of Little Park Road about 7 miles from where you turn onto Monument Road from Broadway. The trailhead provides access to the Mica Mine, Rough Canyon, Bangs Canyon and Billings Canyon trails. Today's hike will be a loop and will be approx. 4.5 miles with a 700' elevation gain.
This hike is rated as strenuous due to some possible boulder hopping and route finding, and the steep climb out.
We will be moving at a pretty fast pace, at least 2-2.5 miles an hour.
What To Bring:
• sturdy hiking boots/shoes
• headlamp/flashlight (just in case)
• plenty of water
• hiking/trekking poles (if needed)
• light lunch/snack
