This area is truly a gem! Only a few miles outside of Woodland Park, it features a short and easy hike into a red rocks playground! Along the way, we’ll learn about different ways to make emergency shelters and even help build one together. The red rocks can also provide decent shelter so we will explore what to look for in case of an emergency. Plus, Yeti will share with us why and how these amazing rocks seems to appear out of nowhere!
We are happy to have Sean Holveck join us from Out There Colorado. He’ll be leading our hike and activities along the way!
Directions: From Colorado Springs, go west on Highway 24 approximately 25 miles. Take HWY 67 north about 4 miles. Look for the “Red Rocks Campground” sign on the east side of the road. Take the dirt road past a small parking lot and veer right at the Y. The parking lot will be on the right.
