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.

A collection of photos from the summer hikes

Rainbow Gulch - 7-Jul-2017

This was a nice 6 mile excursion down and along Rampart Reservoir. It took in forests with lots of columbine flowers (among others), and through some of the Waldo Canyon burn area.

Blackmer Trail - 15 Jun 2017

Great hike along the Blackmer and Cougar's Shadow Trail stopping at the tree growing out of the rock for some pictures
