WHEN: Sunday, May 3, 2015 at 2:00 pm
WHERE: Rhyolite Regional Park, Castle Rock, CO.
HARES: Speedbump and Keeps It Up.
BRING: $5 and shiny new shoes. This trail has no shade, so, unless you’re sure it will rain, bring sun screen etc.
FROM THE NORTH: Go south on I-25 to the Plum Creek Parkway exit in Castle Rock (Exit 181). Exit and turn east under I-25 for a couple of blocks to the first traffic light that isn’t part of the I-25 interchange. The light is at Wilcox Street. Turn right (south) on Wilcox and proceed 2.0 miles to Crystal Valley Parkway. There is a sign on the right side of Wilcox shortly before Crystal Valley Parkway that points to Rhyolite Regional Park. Turn left (east) on Crystal Valley Parkway and proceed 2.0 miles to Rhyolite Regional Park. Park in the part of the lot closet to the entrance.
FROM THE SOUTH: Go north on I-25 to the Tomah Road exit (Exit 174). Exit and at the stop sign dogleg to the right and go north on the access road on the east side of I-25. Proceed about 5 miles to Crystal Valley Parkway. There is no sign for Rhyolite Regional Park coming up from the south, but a substantial concrete bridge that carries Crystal Valley Parkway over the railroad tracks east of the access road is visible to your right as you approach. Turn right (east) on Crystal Valley Parkway and proceed 2.0 miles to Rhyolite Regional Park. Park in the part of the lot closet to the entrance.
THEMES: Spectacular views on trail and celebrating the spiritual unity of DH3 and P2H3. This is probably a good trail for a virgin – reasonably short, fantastic scenery and fully scouted.
DOGS AND STROLLERS: The trail is not suitable for baby strollers and dogs are a bad idea for this trail.
