June 6th Castle Rock to Macedo Ranch loop hike June 6th Castle Rock to Macedo Ranch loop hike Howard files this report from last Saturday's hike:

    There were 18 hikers on our Castle Rock to Macedo Ranch loop hike. We enjoyed good hiking weather, cool and mostly cloudy. It was a cooperative effort on the part of Andrew, Mars and myself. I led outbound, Mars was in the middle, and Andrew brought up the rear. Andrew and I reversed positions on the return leg. Even though individuals hiked at different speeds, all hikers were close to one of us at all times, so there was no confusion as to the correct route. It was a fun day which was enjoyed by all.

Howard says of the upcoming Shell Ridge, Wiget Lane entrance hike on Thursday, June 11 at 9:30 AM: "And another moderate loop hike to Borges Ranch from a different entrance to Shell Ridge. About 5 miles and 750 feet elevation gain. Dog friendly, off-leash OK on trails.".

Andrew says of the upcoming Wall Point hike (Macedo Ranch) hike on Sunday, June 14 at 10:00 AM: "Pot luck hike. Bring something to share. Snacks or finger food. Hiking poles are good for this hike.".
