Sometimes copied, but never duplicated the real "Hike From Colorado to Korea" starts at Paramount Ranch on the former set of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman (Colorado), crosses over to Malibu Creek State Park and ends at the former set of M*A*S*H 4077 (Korea). Highlights along the way include a 1950's race track, the old Reagan Ranch, Malibou Lake and Century Lake.

1. Carpooling is desireable
2. All hikers must stay on established trails
3. No use of flour or chalk to mark trails.
4. Practice "Leave No Trace" – take only pictures and leave only footprints
Our first stop in Colorado Springs will be the bank. Be certain to count everything, as Preston A. Lodge, III, has been known to cheat some people.
