Sample text

To walk amid the grandeur of nature, whether along a narrow path that delves deeply into wilderness or on a well-kept paved trail lined with interpretive signs, is, I believe, to renew the soul. A guide to easy day hikes, like this one, suggests routes to that renewal, and has been compiled with the hope that anyone who embarks on a journey into the wild, regardless of its length, will find the peace and inspiration that I have found there. TRACY SALCEDO Page 3 Leave No Trace While many of these hikes are so closely entwined with the urban environment that it may seem superfluous to advocate a ''Leave No Trace'' philosophy, it is precisely because of their proximity to pollution and dense population that trail users and advocates must be especially vigilant to leave no lasting mark.

Go right (downhill/north). 2 miles). Drop down a staircase into a bower of oak. The sounds Page 37 of Bear Creek rush up at you as you descend. Cross a series of wooden bridges; at the trail crossing, go left (straight/east). Wander through the shady riparian area along the creek to the trailhead and parking area. Options: As indicated in the trail description, a number of trails crisscross Bear Creek Regional Park. This loop is about the longest; though by addition or subtraction, hikes can be customized for any ability or desire.

Turn right (south) on US 85/87, and right again immediately onto Willow Springs Road. 4 mile ahead on Willow Springs Road. 1 Complete the wildlife loop The hike: Throughout the brief Colorado summer, thunderstorms roll over Pikes Peak and grow dark and bold above the high plains. Watching the battleship-gray storms billow upward, then burst forth with arcing lightning and echoing thunder is electrifyingand quite safe when viewed from the shelters that line the Fountain Creek Regional Trail. Page 39 The shelters actually serve a more formal purpose, offering educational information and viewing platforms from which to watch the amazing variety of waterfowl that congregates on the ponds in the Cattail Marsh Wildlife Area.
