We will be hiking the Red Rocks Trail in Matthews/Winter Park near Morrison, Co.  The trail is a moderate 5.8 mile out and back trail with an elevation gain of 1,181 feet.

The trail provides scenic views of the nearly 300 million year old red rocks which belong to the Fountain formation.  These rocks formed as an early version of the Rocky Mountains, known as the Ancestral Rockies. 

We will meet at the Matthew/Winters Park trailhead at 9:30 am.  To get to the trailhead, take CO-93 South to CO-470 East (use right 2 lanes to turn slightly right onto CO-470 East).  After about 0.6 miles, take the I-70 West exit toward Grand Junction and then take exit 259 toward Jefferson County 93/Morrison.  Use the left 2 lanes to turn left onto County Road 93.  Go 0.3 mile and turn right, then make a left turn after 0.2 mile to enter the parking lot.  

There are no formal arrangements for carpooling, but it is always a good option – check the registrant list for potential carpoolers.  

Make sure to dress accordingly, use sunscreen, and bring plenty of water and a snack.
