Hiking




Hiking is normally scheduled once a week, between 3 and 5 miles in length, with varying degrees of difficulty from easy through strenuous. Besides the schedule in the PPOTHG Newsletter, a reminder with further details is sent out about two days before the hike to all members.

St. Mary's Falls - 18 Oct 2017

This was a strenuous hike to the falls (1,800 elevation gain), but worth the effort. Click HERE for the route. There was some ice around the falls.

Garden of the Gods 11 Oct 2017

It was another nice day for checking out the most popular park in Colorado Springs. The hike took us over to the Siamese Twins formation. Click HERE to see the route we took.

Clear Spring Open Space - Oct 3 2017

This was a flat walk along an area of Fountain Creek that we hadn't checked out before. We walked up to an original sod house that has collapsed over the years.  Click HERE to see the route.

Greenland Open Space - 21 Sep 2017

Although there were few hikers, this was a long leisurely hike with some interesting sites/views. One was the grave site of Edward T. Kipps. We also observed two coyotes observing us.  Here's the MapMyHike link to show our route. 

Crags Hike - 13 Sep 2017

After a week of smoky weather caused by fires in the north west US, we had a glorious day to visit this fantastic viewpoint.
