Hike into the wilds
Grape Creek Day Hike
Temple Canyon to Ecology Park
Saturday, September 7, 2019
9:00 AM to 4:00 PM (Trailhead to Trailhead Hiking Times)
A BLM Wildlands Outing
This hike will explore Grape Creek from Temple Canyon, a Cañon City park, to Ecology Park, a recreation area near Cañon City and south of Royal Gorge, which is jointly managed between the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Fremont County. We will learn about the BLM’s Resource Management Plan, and how it could affect the area and also how these areas are threatened by oil and gas development and proposed mining.
This hike, sponsored by Pikes Peak Group Sierra Club, Wild Connections, and Central Colorado Wilderness Coalition, will cover about five miles and is rated moderately strenuous because most of it is off-trail along a stream bottom, with numerous stream crossings and some easy climbing over obstacles.
Bring lunch, water, clothing suitable for the weather conditions, and footwear suitable for hiking with repeated stream crossings (with no time to change in and out of wet footwear). For more information or to register for the hike, contact Jim Lockhart at 719-385-0045 or email@example.com.
Note: This hike is posted on multiple forums, however space is limited. To officially register, you must contact the hike leader, Jim, at the above contact info.
