Hiking

This hike will include 4 levels of hiking.  You will sign up for a level when registering.  The levels are listed below, or see levels of difficulty for more details.

Roadrunners – For the serious, go-fast hiker who desires the challenge of speed and distance (7 to 10 miles) and prefers to race past the sagebrush rather than smell it!

Coyotes – For the recreational hiker who desires energetic physical activity (4 to 7 miles) and the opportunity to stop and smell the sagebrush.

Prairie Dogs – For the casual hiker and families who want to get some exercise (about 3 miles) but will stop to enjoy the view and rest as they hike.

Geckos – For the person or family new to hiking or just coming back from a long time away.  They will do about 2 miles of relatively flat trail.
