Event Notes:

This is a saturday hike. It is also a pot luck hike. Bring some finger food to share after the hike. 6.1 miles and 1,200+ ft of elevation gain. Lots of shade in the beginning, but also lots of sun on the return from Wall Point Ridge. Sheltered picnic tables, water and flush toilets at Macedo. It is one of my top 5 hikes, and Howard discovered it. No dogs but horses OK. Figure that one out. The parking fee is now $6. Bring exact amount for the iron ranger.

Trail Notes:

This is like a Remington plus hike. A little bit further, 6 miles vs 5; a lttle bit higher, 1,200' elevation gain versus 800', but the views are better! Hike duration is 2+ hours. Wall Point is a ridge that overlooks Blackhawk on the right, and looks up at Mt. D. on the left. Wall Point is in Alamo. Bring your camera! Bring the exact change for the parking fee.
