      Mt. Esther Trail Day Hike

      Marian Avoy will be leading a fantastic hike up Mt. Esther. The trail will lead through beautiful forest scenery, ridge-lines, and plenty of overlooks to take pictures. Members will have a great opportunity to see Pikes Peak, Crystal Reservoir, and the Colorado Springs area. Get out of the house and come hiking with us! Spring time is here, and who wants to be stuck in the cabin?!?! FYI: THERE WILL BE A POTLUCK BRUNCH AT MARIAN'S HOUSE AFTER THE HIKE. HER HOUSE IS VERY CLOSE TO THE TRAILHEAD, SO IT WILL NOT BE A FAR DRIVE. Difficulty: Medium CAUTION: THE FIRST MILE OF THIS HIKE IS VERY STEEP - APPROX. 900-1,000 FT. ELEVATION GAIN.
