Join Ed Robb and Stephanie Lenkey Sunday, February 3, for an easy to moderate hike at Mt. Falcon Park, part of the Jefferson County Open Space. We’ll start at the parking lot and hike to the Mt. Falcon overlook, then out the Devil’s Elbow loop, back on the Meadow Trail to the John Brisben Walker castle ruins, then back to the parking lot via the Castle Trail, for a total of about 4 miles. It’s Winter and in Colorado the weather can change quickly. Bring clothing appropriate for both cold and warm weather, microspikes if you have them, snowshoes if you have them just in case, plenty of water, and a snack to munch on.
