Walk Description: From the newly updated Norman D Park, we will follow the extended Tucker Gulch trail under Hwy 93, visit the historic Brickyard House, and wander along the classic Hogback Ridge in North Golden. We will traverse time, from a multi-use trail completed in 2015 to a a Foursquare Romanesque brick house built in the early 1900’s to a geologic structure (the Dakota hogback) created millions of years ago …
Schedule: We’ll begin near the parking lot by making introductions and starting the walk NO LATER than 4:05pm. We should be done walking no later than 6:00pm (and likely earlier, depending on additional mile). This will be a monthly walk on the FIRST Sunday of every month.
The walk will occur, rain or shine. Please be sure to RSVP so we can notify you in the event of an unexpected cancellation. Thank you!
-There will be limited parking in the parking lot, with ample parking in the neighborhood closeby. Please arrive early enough to park your vehicle and meet in the park promptly at our starting time.
-Dog Friendly! We will be doing a loop back to our starting location. Please consider whether your dog can handle 3-4 miles when walking in this season and insure that your dog is calm, well behaved and MUST stay leashed. Please be sure to bring baggies.
-There will be a porta-potty at our starting point.
-We are always subject to changeable weather, so please come prepared with enough layers and/or waterproof gear to keep yourself comfortable.
-Cancellation Policy: We only cancel in extreme weather conditions on our path, such as ice, hail, or lightening. Check Meetup or text the walk leader for the most up-to-date conditions.
