FLOOD NEWS–BAN LIFTED, LATEST CLOSURES
Red Rock Canyon OS remains closed.
Section 16 trails, including Red Rock-Palmer loop and the Intemann Trail, were re-opened this week. Trails from Section 16 leading into Red Rock Canyon remain closed. The ban on rock climbing in City parks was lifted.
Be alert for hazards on the trails!
Red Rock Canyon Open Space, Section 16 has been reopened.
At 8,020 feet, Mt. Muscoco is the highest point in the City Parks system, with unobstructed views of Cheyenne Cañon and the surrounding peaks. We will hike the newly-rerouted trail to the top–there are steep sections, and it’s all uphill, but it’s definitely worth it! Friends of Cheyenne Cañon President Bob Falcone (Hiking Bob) will lead the hike with support from Trails and Open Space Coalition staff.
You should be in good shape and used to sustained uphill hiking to enjoy this hike. It is approximately 3.5 miles round trip. This is a Members-only event. Please do not sign up if you are not a current TOSC member. If you would like to become a member, please go to http://trailsandopenspaces.org/donate.
