Tom Mowle, 719-216-3932,


There's nothing quite like the rock formations along Goose Creek -- unless it's adding splashes of aspen and riparian color in the fall.  All but the very end is a relatively easy trail hike.  The final approach to the Shafthouse overlook requires a little class 2-3 bouldering and dropping down into a very narrow passage (narrow = walk sideways without a pack on). 

We will pass the old cabin ruins on the way out, hang out at the overlook for a while, and visit the final upwelling of Goose Creek on the way back. 

Walking pace will be moderate, but overall pace likely will be fairly slow. This is a fabulous hike for autumn photos, so we will be free to pause as desired.  Please don't sign up if you just want to move fast all the time.  However, 10 miles is 10 miles and days will be getting short, so when we are moving, we will want to move reasonably quickly between points of interest so we can spend plenty of time at them.  Thus also please don't sign up if you just want to move slow all the time.

For this trip, priority is given to Pikes Peak and Pueblo Group members.  Members of other groups will be waitlisted offline until 1 week prior to the trip.

No dogs or other non-human companion animals.




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
