Andrea, Pat, Mary and I met in Lyons and trailered up to Hermit Park,
near Estes Park,
Colorado. It was a picture perfect Colorado Day. After the rough descent off the main trail into the old two track up to Homestead Meadows we picked up a trot and climbed gradually to the access gate. Off to the spring we stopped to water the horses and then on around the Meadow and a nice climb up to the burn area. Springs were running and flowers just getting started. All-in-all a lovely ride.
Horse Camping Area:
Yes…the horse pens are in but I wouldn’t put more than one horse in a pen. We did not get to go up to them but saw them from the road in. We spoke with the front desk person when we checked in to pay the $6 entrance fee to the Park. Apparently they had horse campers up there recently and they were a bit negligent. They put up a temporary grazing area and their dogs were running loose (all no, no’s). So please keep this in
mind if camping there. They are also working on a trail that will lead directly from camp and out to the entrance gate.
