Tuesday, 5/30/2017, Antelope Park Loop

This loop hike straddles the far western reaches of Hall Ranch and Button Rock Preserve. You will not find this trail on any maps. For the most part, the trail is easy to navigate.Our route takes us along North St. Vrain Creek for about a mile, then climbs through forest and descends past rock outcrops into the broad grassland of Antelope Park. There are striking views of snow-capped Longs, Meeker, and Twin Sisters, as well as peaks to the south of those. The loop continues west on the Button Rock Trail, crossing the wide meadow. After gaining elevation again in the trees, we’ll descend back to the creek via Sleepy Lion Trail. Cumulative elevation gain is 1,600 feet.

Wednesday, 5/31/2017, Rolling Creek Trail* Lost Creek Wilderness

This hike starts at relatively low elevation, starting at 8360' and potentially rising to 11,300, although we plan to go only about 5-6 miles in.  We will assess any snow or ice conditions as we get closer to the date.  The first part of the trail is a gentle terrain, then it becomes quite steep as it goes up a tight canyon with dramatic views of "the Castle."If we continued on down a sharply steep ridge for another mile, we would reach the Wigwam Trail, a principal traversing trail of this wilderness area, which could take us to the Colorado Trail, Goose Creek Trail, and others.Bring the ten essentials, possibly micro spikes, and poles.

Wednesday, 5/31/2017, RMOTHG Carpenter Peak, Roxborough Park

New RMOTHG members are encouraged to join more seasoned RMOTHG members for this hike at one of our most beautiful state parks.  We will be on a well-maintained trail, hiking at a moderate pace, approximately 6.4 miles round trip.  The views of the very green valley are beautiful right now, with contrasting red rocks and far-reaching green meadows.  We will have lunch at Carpenter Peak with expansive views to the west of the Continental Divide and Rocky Mountain National Park.  Plan on a full day! Plan for changing Colorado weather by dressing in layers and include your 10 essentials in your pack.  Bring lunch, snacks for the day, and plenty of water.  Some portions of the trail are in full sun, so remember your sunscreen.  It can be windy at the top, and during the scout there were tiny, flying, biting black bugs.  Depending on your tolerance, you may want to bring your bug repellant. The leader will send out an email the day before the hike with anticipated weather and any last minute schedule changes so please watch for that note.  Please advise the leader of any pertinent medical conditions.   After returning to our carpool spot we will go for an optional stop in Morrison at The Cow for ice cream, drinks, snacks.  This is a good opportunity to continue to get to know your fellow hikers.

Wednesday, 5/31/2017, Wathen/Audra Loop Horsetooth Mountain Park

We will go from the trailhead up the Horsetooth Falls trail to Spring Creek Trail, the group will determine if we want to take the side trips to see the base of the falls and/or the top of the falls (to base of falls adds approximately 0.2 miles to top of falls approximately 0.2 miles). From Spring Creek we will turn off on Wathen Trail. Note that going up this trail you will have very good views of Horsetooth Rock AND the mysterious Easter Island Monolith !!!! At the top of Wathen we will meet with the Horsetooth Rock Trail and follow it up towards the rock. At the intersection with the Audra Culver Trail the group will once again be asked if they would like to go up to Horsetooth Rock or continue on trail (this would add another 0.4 miles). We will turn onto the Audra Culver Trail where if the weather is clear we will get views of Rocky Mountain National Park. The Audra Trail will intersect with the South Ridge Trail where we will start downhill and do a short "off-trail" cut off to the Horsetooth Rock Trail. We will follow this trail back to the trailhead. Note that even though this is not a long hike that there is quite a bit of elevation gain so all participants must be physically ready for significant uphill trudges.

Wednesday, 5/31/2017, RMOTHG Maxwell Falls Spring Hike!

FOR RMOTHG.  Let's enjoy a pleasant, casual, relaxed-pace, moderate A, 5 mi hike, 1100 ft elev gain at popular Maxwell Falls just past Evergreen. We start at lower falls TH, head UP (This trail is much more UP than down. Not hard, but definitely UP.). We'll follow a pleasant trail along the creek to a four way intersection, walk down and UP again. We won't stop much, but will go slower on UP parts.  We pass two stream crossings (Poles help on one; other is over a bridge.) till we finally reach the falls (This trail is a good workout, but again, not hard. Just lots of UP. Down at end on return to TH, though! Worth our efforts!).Falls still strong right now after the big snow. We'll peek behind the falls, too!  From the falls, we walk the higher Cliff Loop where terrain is different, and enjoy a neat cliff view at lunch.  This is a popular hike for good reason: diverse terrain, waterfall, aspen grove, and cliff overview onto foothills!  We'll also designate a few quiet walking sections since many enjoy birds, wind, being able to appreciate scenery quietly. LOOK FOR TUESDAY NIGHT EMAIL with last min info, weather update, possible time changes for weather  (Weather can change from Tues night to Wed morning! On Friday's scout, we encountered Big Thunder so we'll absolutely watch weather!).

Wednesday, 5/31/2017, RMOTHG Centennial Cone Hike

Centennial Cone is primarily left as it is to help preserve elk and mountain lions. Due to a lot of road work on Hwy. 6 and Douglas Mountain Road on the south, we will be accessing the park from the north off Hwy. 93 onto Golden Gate Canyon Road and Robinson Hill Road, shuttling cars to the SW parking lot and returning to start the hike on the north end - Travois Trail. Much of the interior section of the park is still closed due to elk calving season until mid-June. This can be a warm park and it should be 70 degrees with 20% chance of rain Wednesday. I will send out an updated weather report Tuesday night. If there will be lightning, I will need to choose another hike due to the often open areas on this hike. I saw spring flowers, steller jays, hummingbirds, deer on the road. We could possibly see a rattlesnake since it will be getting warmer.This will be a full day of hiking (8.8 miles) and driving due to needing to shuttle cars 3 times. So, any refreshment stop afterwards would be after 4pm/ near dinner.Please bring 10 essentials, 2 liters of water, lunch and snacks, hat, sunscreen, medical info, poles are useful going downhill/if muddy. This is an up and downhill hike, down for the first 4 miles and then up mostly for the last almost 5. Its hard to judge the elevation gain/loss from just the map - both parking lots are in the 7,600 - 7,700' range.

Friday, 6/2/2017, Best of Lost Creek Wilderness Loop

On a hike that includes both the spectacular and unusual upper Lost Creek Valley and the scenic high portion of the Brookside McCurdy Trail near McCurdy Mountain and Bison Peak, we will enjoy the best parts of the Lost Creek Wilderness.  We will start at the Lost Park Trailhead on the west side of the range. We will camp in Wigwam Park, near the big crossing of Lost Creek, in McCurdy Park and possibly on the high scenic ridge below Bison Peak. We can easily summit Bison Peak if we want.  We waded across Lost Creek two years ago with some difficulty but no casualties.  Sometimes, there is a log bridge, but the crossing instead may be a group project. Prepare to hike five days and camp four nights, although a group decision can be made to complete the descent from Bison Pass to Lost Park Trailhead on the fourth day. Please email the leader (bwatkins08@hotmail.com) if you wish to participate.

Although not exceptionally high, Deer Mountain is strategically positioned to offer stunning views in all directions. The Deer Mountain trail continues over the peak to the east, heading toward Deer Ridge, Estes Park, Oldman Mountain and connection with North Deer Mountain Trail. At the connection, we will circle around to the northwest to return to our cars.Bring water, snacks and lunch to eat on the trail.
