Weekend trail update
Hey, all. Hiked parts of the Intemann Trail, Red Rock Canyon and Cheyenne Mountain State Park (photo is from the Sundance Trail there - it'll be our Happy Trail in this week's Out There section of The Gazette) over the weekend. Seems the trails are in good shape. See the posts from Friday about Barr Trail and more.
Here's an update on Waldo Canyon from Biz Ed Joanna Bean:
Waldo Canyon is mostly dry throughout, except a few patches of snow and a muddy stretch on the far side of the loop. Saturday offered one of those classic March-in-Colorado choices: ski or hike? With so much stuff to do in town, I chose hiking, and a trail close to home at that.
The parking lot was packed around 2 p.m, but, as is usually the case with Waldo, most of the hikers were going only as far as the loop. I had that part of the trail mostly to myself. It still seems a little strange to have so much sunlight so late in the afternoon in mid-March. This moved-up switch to daylight-saving time will take some getting used to.
See Zen's comment on the Friday trail posting for news of the Mount Esther trail.
