Continues Until:
Location: Meet at Gunnison Bank & Trust to carpool
Details: Join the Gunnison Public Lands Initiative, Mountain Manners, and Western State Colorado University Master in Environmental Management program on a free, guided hike up Lost Canyon on May 20th to celebrate Colorado Public Lands Day! Starting from the Lost Canyon Road, the hike will be about 5 miles round trip. The hike has moderate elevation gain and meanders through sage brush topping out with 360-degree views of Gunnison country. Please come prepared with water, snacks, sunscreen, insect repellant and any other materials you will need to enjoy a couple hours of hiking. We will meet at the Gunnison Bank and Trust in Gunnison at 1:30 to carpool to the trailhead. For more information please email maddie@gunnisonpubliclands.org or call (970) 389-5749. Afterwards, we hope you will join us for a specialty Colorado Public Lands Day beer at High Alpine Brewery from 5:30 to 6:30 where Senator Kerry Donovan – the CO Public Lands Day Bill author – will be with local electeds, community organizations and members to celebrate the reasons many of us live here in the beautiful Gunnison Valley–OUR Public Lands!
