KruckPleasant Stroll  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 25, 2007


This was a good way to wind down the week. Though snow was deep in places, it was solid enough to go sans snowshoes. Mostly families in the park, so we had the peak trail and peak to ourselves. A calm enough day I heard a mouse scuttling in the leaves under the scrub oak, and was able to locate him. That's a calm day. Falcons, chickadees, and some kind of bird that looked like a blue grackle were also active.

I had no idea that the American Discovery Trail passed right through here.

2 hours roundtrip. Saw a fox and some mule deer. Good views of South Boulder Peak, Bear Peak, Longs Peak and Denver.

Denver greeted Erin and I with extremely warm temps during our Christmas visit, and Roxborough sounded like a nice place to go to test our legs. I liked seeing all the mule deer along the trail, and the views were excellent from the summit. I wish I had come here sooner!

I hiked Carpenter with the Colorado Mountain Club. We took the Carpenter Peak Trail to the top, then looped back around on a forest service trail and the Elk Valley Trail on the return. There's a lot of snapped branches and downed trees, thanks to last week's snowstorm.

Good workout - short hike - watch for lots of mud in the spring time... Boots recommended during spring for this reason. Watch out for all the people - you may want to go early or later to avoid the crowds.

Unique, over-the-top view of the Fountain Formation. Sections of Roxborough rival the more famous Red Rocks Park to the north.

Great views on a heavily cloudy day. Saw plenty of wildlife including a small herd of mule deer on the trail.
