Description

June Member Hike: Cheyenne Mountain

Join us for a hike to the top of Cheyenne Mountain in celebration of National Trails Day! This hike will be an all-day adventure with moderate to difficult terrain and some light bushwhacking; 8.5 miles round trip with 1,245 feet of elevation gain. Bob Falcone, aka Hiking Bob, will lead the group on this beautiful trek up the west side of Cheyenne Mountain to the real summit of Cheyenne Mountain, which is not where most people probably think it is. Participants will experience pine forests, aspen groves, meadows, colorful wild flowers, an old homestead and breathtaking views.

When: Saturday, June 1st, 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

Where: The group will meet Panera Bread (1832 Southgate Rd, Colorado Springs, CO 80906) and carpool to the trail head.

What to Bring: sturdy hiking shoes, trekking poles, plenty of water, lunch and snacks, and layers of clothing for all Colorado weather.

Additional info: A half-mile section (each way) of this hike is very difficult. This hike is not on the Dixon Trail. Hike is limited to 15 hikers. No dogs, please. Attendees must be TOSC members. Parking at the trailhead is limited, so carpooling is encouraged. If you have room, please consider taking some fellow hikers with you. At least 4 cars will be needed.
