choose. From easy to challenging, the hike offers spectacular views of
red rock and sandstone formations and diverse, spectacular flora and
fauna. You can do one or several trails–there is truly something for
everyone of any level, skill or interest.
Also, you can compete
for awesome prizes such as a night's stay at a mountain resort or bed
and breakfast, zip-line adventure, outdoor gear or passes to Glenwood
Caverns Adventure Park. (Prizes will be awarded based on the amount of
actual pledges received.)
We will also award multiple copies of
the highly acclaimed book, "Snowshoe Routes: Colorado's Front Range" by
