Midland Hill Summit Hike

Saturday, November 11: 8:30 AM - 2:00 PM

Join AHRA Volunteer Naturalist/Geologist Bob Hickey to hike the moderate grades of the Midland Hill Summit Trail. Partake in beautiful mountain views up and down the Arkansas valley, especially at the summit where there is a 360 degree view. Trekkers will follow the trail east and south through beautiful open forest with a number of interesting granitic boulder formations to the switchbacks that climb the steep west side of Midland Hill toward the summit. At the top of the switchbacks, the trail works its way into a drainage and begins climbing very steeply to the top of the ridge. The final climb up the summit cone remains rather steep much of the way until near the summit, where we are greeted with a rather interesting rock formation. We return via the same route and the steep open forest descent allows for some stunning views. At times, it almost appears as if you are dropping off the edge of a cliff even though you are not! No fee is required, but call AHRA at 719-539-7289 to register or for more information.

Meet at the parking area on CR 304 at the intersection of the Midland Railroad Grade (signed) 1.5 miles above the Collegiate Peaks Overlook The trail is a well maintained off- road tracks that are good for walking but the summit section is rocky.  There is one steep grade (1000 foot climb in one mile) near the end and a couple of additional shorter upgrade pulls.  Dogs are allowed but remember that we share the trail with hikers and bikers.  US Forest/BLM regulations apply east of the railroad grade.  Bring plenty of water and don’t forget the sunblock.  Also, pack a snack and/or lunch – we will be able to enjoy a nice stop for one at the summit where views are outstanding.  It is fall and could be chilly and windy (it will be chilly at least to start out).  Bring gloves, a warm hat and layer clothing to adjust to changing temperatures.

Audience: Adults Only
