Wildfire season is upon us. Join us for a BLM Ranger Talk and a 2-mile wildfire preparedness hike with CSU on the Yellow Knolls Trail to see impacts of the 2020 Lava Ridge Fire and learn what you can do to prevent human-caused fires in 2022. Participation capped at 15 and carpooling encouraged. Please RSVP here to save your spot.
The Yellow Knolls Hike is rated moderate. Expect temperatures in the mid to high 80’s while hiking and a cumulative elevation gain of 440 feet. Read more about the trail here.
Each hiker must bring at least 1 liter of water per 2 hours outside. Bringing salty snacks to maintain electrolyte balance is encouraged.
