Location

****Please note:  All hikers must be fully vaccinated against COVID 19 to participate in this trip.  Masks are also required. ****

Let's meet at the Roxborough State Park Visitor's Center at 9:15 am.  We'll hike from the Visitor's Center up to Carpenter's Peak, drop down to the Powerline Trail via the Colorado Trail, hike south to the Elk Valley Trail, and return to the Visitor's Center.  The hike up Carpenter's Peak is approximately 3.1 miles and rises about 900 feet from the Visitor's Center to 7,160 feet.  We will travel through foothills scrub along with montane trees such as Ponderosa pine to the peak.  We will then drop steeply down through a heavily vegetated/forested area to connect to the Powerline Trail (1.75 miles).  Turning south, we will then again to the ridge through a grassy/scrub area on an old dirt road and connect to the Elk Valley Trail (1.36 miles). We'll return back to the Visitor's Center via the same trails(approximately 2.65 miles). 

***State Park entrance fees are $9 per vehicle.
