Join OSMP Naturalist Deb Cushman for a moderate 3 mile hike (with approximately 500 feet of elevation gain) around the Flagstaff and Chapman Drive area. We will do an evening hike while learning about some of the architecture, buildings, roads, and our nation’s history at this amazing spot on Open Space. We will meet at Flagstaff Summit East outside the Flagstaff Nature Center. We will explore the summit before hiking down the Ute or Range View trail (We will come up the other) where we can enjoy breath taking views of the Continental Divide before descending to the top of Chapman Dr. at Realization point. We will continue a little way down and back up Chapman Drive and maybe head to the Green Mtn. Lodge (an added .5 mile and couple hundred feet of elevation.) if we are up for it and have time, before returning to the summit. Please bring a liter plus of water as there is none available at the summit, sturdy hiking shoes, and clothes for the ever-changing weather. Maybe throw in a head lamp in case we are losing the light on our way back.
