Pikes Peak area trail report

This weekend is shaping up to be a nice one. A few clouds, but mild temperatures in the 50s. It's great weather for hiking and biking.

I road several miles of trail on Cheyenne Canon Thursday and can report they are free of ice. Same is true of Section 16, Red Rock, and trails in Rampart Range.

One of our photographers, recently returned from a trip to Barr Camp, said Barr Trail gets icy at about No Name Creek (about 9,000 feet). If you're hiking that high, we recommend screws in the shoes. For an explanation, see the post below.

Bottom line: It's a good weekend for either skiing, hiking or biking. Like my grandmother always says: Follow your bliss.
