Location

THIS HIKE IS FOR RMOTHG MEMBERS AND IS LIMITED TO THOSE WHO ARE FULLY VACCINATED OR HAVE A NEGATIVE PCR TEST WITHIN THREE DAYS OF THE TRIP.

Meet at the CoorsTek Parking Lot adjacent to the CMC Building (10th and Jackson in Golden) promptly at 8:15am to begin hiking by no later than 8:30am.  I'll be driving a silver Nissan pickup with topper and Fort Lewis College licenses plates.  We will depart from the CoorsTek Lot on foot, so no need to worry about carpooling.

Restrooms or vault toilets are available at the CMC Building, the Lookout Mountain Nature Preserve, and at the Windy Saddle Trialhead enroute to the top of Lookout Mountain.

It's okay to send me a text, but I will probably call rather than text you back if you need a response.
