zukes dog hike logo

This Saturday’s hike is sure to be fun for those who run on two feet and on four. Have fun in the great outdoors! Strengthen your bond with your dog by spending time together. Give you and your dog a chance to stretch those legs after a busy week. Help your dog socialize with other dogs. Provide your dog and yourself with a smorgasbord of scents and sights through this group hike.

The group will gather this Saturday, March 7th, in the parking lot of the Mountain Park Environmental Center and will set out at 1 pm. In the advent of snow, snowshoes will be available! Be sure to dress warmly and in layers. And don’t forget to bring water (and maybe a snack).

The guide for this hike will be Ranger Sandy.  Sandy Christensen is a long-time teacher of physical education and health for diverse age groups. She has traveled the world and is now a part of the Earth Studies team at the Mountain Park Environmental Center.

Pueblo is their sixth stop this year — right after Denver (January 12-14). Other stops so far include Alabama, Wyoming, Louisiana, and Texas.

The first chute will open at 7:30 pm.
