Join Ed Robb and Stephanie Lenkey Sunday, April 28, for an easy-to-moderate 4.4 mile hike along the Gill Trail south of Buffalo Creek. The trail climbs up a little over 500′ then drops down to follow the South Platte River. This gorgeous canyon has amazing boulders, rapids, and scenery to spare, and maybe some wildlife to see, too. Bring microspikes if you have them should there still be some snow.
