Hiking




 

Hiking Director: Arthur Foley – afoley@ret.unca.edu

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.

Crags 2021

Beautiful day hiking to the top of the Crags.

Hiking KT Boundary 2021

A great hike to the KT Boundary, led by a docent from the Denver Museum of Natural History who appeared in the NOVA PBS documentary. Interesting to hear about mammal bones that were found in concrete at the sight.

South Chamberlain Trail 13 Oct 2020

Another great day for a hike. This area is known as Strawberry Hills and is part of the property that The Broadmoor traded with the city of Colorado Springs. The Broadmoor has done a good job on the trails. Just wish there was a better map of the area. Click HERE to see our route.

Sandstone Ranch Open Space 8 Oct 2020

It was a nice day to check out this newly opened Open Space. What made it even nicer was that a new section of trail was available, allowing us to go farther than originally planned. Click HERE to see the route we took.

Womens Forest Trail 375 30 Sep 2020

It was a great day to see the highlights of the aspen in their golden colors on this trail a bit north of Divide. Click HERE to see the route.

Pineries Open Space 22 Sep 2020

One of our first days back on the trails again. The Pineries Open Space is fairly new with a 9-mile over-all trail. We did just over two miles in-out for this one. Caveat... Some photos taken on an earlier (non-ppothg sponsored hike). Note the smiles behind the masks. Click HERE to see the route taken.
