This hike is open to vaccinated RMOTHG members only or those members with a negative PCR COVIS-19 test within three days of the trip.

Registration for this hike will begin at 5 PM on Friday, September 3. 

We take the Mason Creek trail for 2 miles, then 2.3 miles along the Bear Paws trail which has 3 overlooks.  The first two overlooks are easily accessible.  The third overlook has a short scramble, which is where we will stop for our lunch break.  We then follow Bear Paws back to Mason Creek trail to the Old Mill site/trail and then back Staunton trail returning to TH. 

There are truly wonderful views at the overlooks as well as Pikes Peak view spots along Staunton trail.

I will email those on the roster with an update on weather conditions prior to the hike.

If you have a State Park pass, please consider being a driver.  Otherwise, carpools will share the cost of a $10 day pass for the park.


Again, there is a short scramble to the third overlook.  

Please advise leader of any medical conditions you have that could affect you on this hike prior to the hike.

Remember the 10 essentials! 


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
