Castle/Meadow/Tower  Sucess!

Hike with Maria. We had some thunder and a brief episode of rain/hail on the way up, the rest of the time it was mostly sunny and warm.

Mount Falcon  Sucess!

Today I climbed Mount Falcon. I climbed from the eastern trailhead since it's more of a hike from that direction. I went up the Castle Trail, where I almost stepped on a rattlesnake that bluff(?) struck at me and rattled.

Along the way, I made side trips to the little summits of Walkers Dream, Two Dog Trail, Old Ute Trail, and Devils Elbow. Even though the summits weren't ranked, I wanted to visit them all.

In the summit area, I went up the Meadow and Tower Trails and down the Castle Trail. I had a nice break/lunch on top.

After that I descended the Castle and Turkey Trot Trails back to the car park. I figured I did just under 11.5 miles with all the side trips.

Castle/Meadow/Tower  Sucess!

CMC hike. The original plan was to snowshoe Butler Gulch, but I-70 traffic was horrid, so we did Falcon instead. It snowed all day. We had a pretty good turnout (nine) despite the snow and crummy road conditions.

close to home, but always enjoyable  Sucess!

Another of my regular "close to home" hikes. Try the Turkey Trot trail to avoid some of the bikes and other congestion.
