Red Mountain Hike (Manitou Springs) 9/10/11

Red Mountain is accessible from the Intemann trail.  Most people know about Intemann, but Red seems lesser known - you can summit it and see ruins of an old Incline Railroad on top, and view the Manitou Incline trail.  We started down by the Manitou schools - middle and high - and came back via the Crystal Valley Cemetery.  One short part near the summit of Red Mtn was a bit dicey.  Nice moderate hike.

Cheyenne Mountain State Park -North Talon Trail 9/3/11

Talon trails are the longest in the park so far, but worth it to get the elevation and treed areas.
