What better way to celebrate your public lands than by hiking with friends? Three years ago, State Senator Kerry Donovan sponsored a bill recognizing the third Saturday in May as Colorado Public Lands Day, and it passed into law! This year will mark the third celebration of what we hope will become a wonderful statewide tradition of honoring and enjoying our public lands.
To commemorate this special occasion, Wilderness Workshop and Bristlecone Mountain Sports are partnering to lead a free, public hike on Saturday, May 18, at Perham Creek Trail outside of Carbondale. We’ll convene in the parking lot of the Third Street Center at 1 p.m. (parking is very limited at the trailhead). We’ll hike at an average pace for two-three hours and have a discussion about public lands in the Thompson Divide and our work to protect it through the CORE Act, while enjoying breathtaking views of the Divide.
Upon our return, everyone is invited to join us for a post-hike drink at Roaring Fork Beer Company’s Batch. Enjoy a drink on us!
