Kids are welcome but keep in mind, there can be dangerous objects along the trail. Please keep a close eye on little ones. We currently do not have gloves for kids under 10.

We always suggest to wear lightweight layers, with long pants/ long sleeved shirt and sturdy closed-toed shoes. Bring water and a small backpack for snacks, rain gear, or anything needed to keep kiddos happy, just in case!

**WEATHER: usually we do not cancel. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter feeds for the most updated news, or call 719-429-9006 for info.
