Hike Lower Hermosa trail

Tuesday, June 15, 8:00 am Register by Email

This hike follows good trail all the way, is not difficult, but is fairly long, with many gentle ups and downs and a few steeper slopes. Highlights are possibility of spring wildflowers, view spots, creek crossings, some magnificent Ponderosas and Aspen groves and an expansive meadow. When we reach the fork on the Hermosa trail at 4 miles, we will take the right fork and go up the Dutch Creek trail for another 1 1/2 miles to the meadow for lunch. 
Early turnbacks with a buddy OK–those wishing to might turn around at the fork, if not before. 
Limit 15. No dogs. So! Hikes are limited to vaccinated members only.
