Longmont and Prospect 10 Mile Ramble!
July 6, 2014 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
This will be a fun and diverse walking experience taking us through open space trails, historic main street Longmont, and the unique residential streets surrounding the area including the famous and newly developed “Prospect New Town” community. You will learn a little about the history of the area as well as the benefits of taking risk in residential development!
Difficulty: Intermediate. (NOTE: All of these walks are considered ‘advanced walking’ based on their length. If you have concerns about your ability, please feel free to contact me at email address below!)
Cost I’m charging $15/each for this Walking Trip ($10 for [email protected] Members). These are to cover extra trip planning and program. Included in the fee will be cultural/historical information, snacks and printed route maps for everyone participating.
Registration & Payment: See TICKETS at bottom of this page. If you would prefer to pay cash or check, please email me directly at [email protected]
Terrain: (Residential and Open Space Trail/Sidewalk/Neighborhood Streets) Paved, gravel, and dirt.
Schedule & Meeting Location: We will meet at 8:00am at Ziggi’s Coffee on Francis Street (there are several Ziggi’s Coffees, so be sure its the one on Francis Street!) We’ll talk through Walk2Connect goals, answer any questions. We will leave Ziggi’s Coffee NO LATER than 8:15AM.
Dog Friendly | Please make sure you are comfortable with your dog walking 10 miles on trail, gravel, and road in Summer
Weather: We are in the Summer season, but please plan to bring a rain jacket or umbrella in case we run into showers.
Breaks, Restrooms & Lunch: There will be a few opportunities to use the restroom at different points along the route.
Can’t make it the whole way? (or you’re unsure): Please plan to have someone available to pick you up if you don’t think you can go the whole way; however, you will be surprised at what your body can do!
– Comfortable socks (pref. NON cotton socks!)
– Sturdy shoes (not loose and not too tight / pref hiking or cross-training shoes)
– Light backpack w/water and snack foods (almonds, bars, fruit)
– Gloves, scarf, beanie
– Sunglasses & Sunscreen (and hat if you wear them)
– Bring many (thinner) layers depending on anticipated temperature and light rain gear just in case. I would avoid big/bulky winter coats as you will warm up once we walk and its way easier to shed/store light clothing.
