Thursday, 3/11/2021, Finding the DSP&P #2 (Pine Valley Ranch, offtrail) RESCHEDULE

Second of several hikes to view the old DSP&P right-of-way in the North Fork valley.The DSP&P (Denver, South Park and Pacific) narrow gauge railroad ran from Denver to central Colorado mining country in the late 1800's and early 1900's.   Trains are long gone but the right-of-way is still evident in many places along the old route.  Out of Denver it followed the S Platte River through Waterton Canyon, then turned up the North Fork to Bailey and Kenosha Pass.  Along the way it passed through what is now Pine Valley Ranch at Pine Colorado.  Private property blocks following the route along the North Fork west of PVR but it is possible to hike around that property to visit the RR grade upstream.  So this is what we do. From PVR we hike south (and up) on a Buffalo Creek bike trail for 2 miles, then hike another 1.5 miles off trail down to the river through open and sometimes steep terrain. Assuming we get to the river we can walk along the bank awhile to see this remote place.  We return the way we came.  Most of the hike will be through the always interesting Buffalo Creek burn area and there will be some modest route finding challenges.  Here is a CalTopo link to a map of our route https://caltopo.com/m/MQS3  (updated Feb 28) Our hike is the dotted red line.Wearing a mask while moving is optional but please respect other trip members and keep your distance.

Tuesday, 3/16/2021, PPG Program: Dean Waits - A Zoom Tour of Western Canyons and Ruins

Pikes Peak Group Program7:00 PM Tuesday, March 16th, 2021 via ZoomDean Waits Presents: A Zoom Tour of Western Canyons and Ruins (A Zoom link will be sent out prior to the program.)Dean Waits says he is starting to enjoy the Zoom way to meet.  In this presentation come Zoom with him to many very special places in Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and western Colorado.  He’s backpacked twice in Bears Ears National Monument (Na.Mon.), located in the SE corner of Utah.  It’s the guardian to countless Native American ruins, artifacts, pictographs and petroglyphs dating back to the Ancestral Puebloan era and beyond.We’ll start at the Bullet Canyon TH, then enter Grand Gulch and finish out of Kane Gulch.  Visiting many named ruins along the way; Jailhouse, Perfect Kiva, Turkey Pen and others. Then back into Fish and Owl Canyons.  There are so many other canyon’s he’s not explored. Take a look at Natural Bridges Na.Mon. with its massive stone bridges is nearby.We’ll also take a pictorial tour of Aztec Ruins Na.Mon. and Chaco both in New Mexico.  Aztec Ruins offers a restored Kiva for the real feel as you enter complete with the sound of drums and Chaco is so different from many of the others with its massive multi roomed structures. ` There’s Canyon de Chelly in AZ where he had two Navajo guides to show him around and witnessed how a flash flood can quickly appear.  Let’s take a peek into Navajo Na.Mon.From the Bears Ears plateau we’ll drive down the Moki Dugway, a twisting switch back dirt road that falls 1,200 ft in 3 mi’s to the valley floor and the start of giant monolithic rock mesa’s and spires, eventually to Monument Valley Na. Mon.  There you can re-imagine the early John Ford movies starring John Wayne with the sound of pounding hooves, gun fire and flying arrows.  We can do a bit of canyoneering in the San Rafael Swell.There’s Hovenweep ruins in SW Colorado which contains a different array of rock structures located in separate enclaves.  Throughout this trip will be your chance to examine the building methods used in these different topographical locations at different times.  Some in canyon alcoves, others in wide open grasslands.  Hope you can join in on this tour, while you enjoy your favorite beverage, relaxing in your favorite chair.  Sign up on the CMC web under “Trips” and the link will be sent to you before showtime, on March 16 at 7pm.

Usually the lower portion of the trail is somewhat clear of snow, but we will need microspikes due to icy conditions. As we get near the halfway point the trail is often hidden by snow build-up so here is where groups often flounder with the routefinding. Never the less, with snowshoes, and if we can stay on trail, we will be able to reach the top of the Kenosha Mountain range. We then head north another half mile to the Foster bench Mark. Usually this is lunch.Bring both micro spikes and snowshoes, as well as your regular winter gear.Weather permitting, we may have a short celebratory "picnic" back at the trailhead. With this in mind consider bringing a snack, the "drink" of your choice, a warm parka, and folding chair.Leader will send out a detailed trip write-up, including map and GPX file prior to departure day.
