THREE weeks later and I finally decide to write. I started a new job this month so I got a little bit distracted, but here we are!!
July 20, 2019
With less breaks than the hike last week, we made it to the top and got to the reservoir.
Catamount Falls Trail is a 6.4 mile, out and back hike located in Pike National Forest.
Difficulty level: Moderate
Elevation Gain: 1,702ft –> 958ft was the hike last week
Temperature: 83 degrees
Summary: The best time to hike this bad boy is between April and October. If you have a dog, bring him along. You guys will get views of several waterfalls and a beautiful reservoir at the top. Once you get past the first hump (the hardest part), the trail begins to level out up until you get to the dirt road which leads you to the reservoir. I burned a little over 750 active calories on this hike and we were done before 12! INCREDIBLE.
If your legs aren’t completely noodled yet and you won’t be back in Colorado Springs for a bit, look-up the Garden of The Gods. The Garden of the Gods is made-up of 30 trails, all of mixed difficulty levels. Perk: This park is free!
Brewery: Falling Rock Tap House (Denver, CO)
Beer: Strange Watermelon Hefe Weizen – Sour
Brew Review: 660 pounds of organic watermelons go into this beer. With only a 5% ABV, you can enjoy a few while sitting at the bar and chatting with these veteran bartenders. Over 12,850 people rated this Tap House on FourSqaure, ranking it #1 for “A large beer list in Denver“. The food is also delicious and affordable. I got the spicy fries and I’ll be back there soon to get another basket.
I’m giving this casual spot a 9/10 for atmosphere, beer list, food quality, and location.
& that’s a wrap! See you next week, hiking people.
Whatever you decide to do in life, make sure it makes you happy-Target Coaster 🙂
