June Backpack Trip
Lost Creek Wilderness – East Lost Park
Friday June 5th through Sunday June 7th

With Parker Days the following weekend and PV later in the month, this is the best weekend.

I have been into this area once before (with my son on an overnight trip) and it is a fairly easy 3-mile hike in from the Lost Park Trailhead (about a 2-hour drive from Parker) and would be a good “break-in” backpack trip. It is a fairly nice meadow/park with decent brook trout fishing in Lost Creek. The rock formations in the Lost Creek Wilderness are pretty amazing. There are opportunities to explore the area on Saturday before heading back on Sunday.

July Backpack Trip
Buffalo Peaks Wilderness – Buffalo Meadows Loop (Rough & Tumbling Creek Loop)
Friday July 17th through July 19th

This is about a 11-mile round trip. I have been into this area twice and it is a moderate trip. The first day would be to hike into the Buffalo Meadows and base out of there for the next two (2) nights until returning to the trailhead via the loop trail. There is the opportunity to climb the Buffalo Peaks on the second day. This is one of the best views in the state in my humble opinion with view of South Park, Pikes Peak and the Collegiate Peaks. I found a couple of informational links on this hike.
