Thomas Trail pix here
Hope this'll work. I'm trying to post from a La Quinta Inn in Albuquerque. I may have to ask my colleagues in the Springs to lend a hand.
This trail above Green Mountain Falls is fun. It's not difficult, and the lower part isn't long, but it isn't flat, either. It's the sort of trail my friends and I would have staked out as kids, playing army or jungle warriors - lots of up and down, rocks and trees, places to set up an ambush.
Take a short hike or run along the bottom stretch or set aside a few hours for the loop. Lunch in the Garden of Eden sounds great right now.
This is a good trail on a hot day - plenty of shade. And be kind to the folks who live near the trailhead and park down below in town. You're out for a hike, so what's it matter to add a few blocks?
What trails do you hike when it's hot out?
