Looking for someone to lead a DTR group at Centennial Cone on any or
all of the following dates: 10/5 (this Sun), 10/11, 10/19, 10/25.
Centennial Cone is one of the newer OS parks in the Jeffco system,
with really nice trails, just ~10mi W of Golden. The basic loop is
either 12 or 16.5mi, depending on where you start. There are options
to do shorter out-and-back runs/hikes. Oct would be a good time to go
up there to get some good views, before it gets gold and icy.
Centennial Cone has an alternate use policy on weekends. Odd numbered
weekend days are hiker only.
"Leading" a DTR run is easy. It just means picking a time and meeting
place (we usually meet by the Loaf 'n Jug, just off Iowa and hwy 93,
in Golden, to carpool). It helps if you are familiar with the trails
so you can help people pick the appropriate routes to take for the
time they want to run. You do not have to be the fastest to lead a
run; i.e., you don't have to be the lead runner.
If interested, send a message to the group at
. Include the important details
(where and when to meet, approx run time and time of return, etc.). If
you want, you can contact me for more questions about the park first.
