We are repairing Red Mountain Trail and need your help. We will be installing timber steps and creating water diversion structures in a shady forest area. We meet at Manitou Springs Free Parking Lot (near Memorial Park in Manitou) at 8:00 AM and we work to 1:00 PM (followed by a free beer at a Manitou tavern).

or just show up with a friend.
The Out There section of the Gazette recognized the Friends in their article “Here are 16 wonderful outdoor pursuits to explore in the year ahead”. Number 12 was “Take a guided hike at Red Rock Canyon Open Space”. The Friends of Red Rock Canyon do offer guided hikes through the Educational Series of Talk and Walks. Many were delayed this past summer with the closure of Red Rock Canyon due to flood damage, but several were offered in August and September. We hope to continue with our Educational Series this year. If you are interested in a certain topic to cover, or know of someone (even you) who would be interested in presenting, please share with us by either calling David at 685-4792 or emailing us at http://friends@
Please let anyone know that might be interested in doing our Talk and Walks, they are announced primarily on our email list and website for reservations. Thanks!
Fossil Brewing Company’s Evolution Ale Series is one of the ways that they give back and get the community involved in the brewery. For each generation, ballots are given to everyone that comes in and gets a beer. The ballots include 4 ingredients to pick from to add to the current beer as well as a choice of a local charity to donate part of the profits to. After 2 generations the ingredient will be retired from the beer. The Friends of Red Rock Canyon were chosen to benefit from the sales of their Evolution Ale:Generation 3. Each beer sold will have 25% of the profits going to the Friends. The base recipe for Evolution Ale:Generation 3 features toasted malt and caramel character. The third generation features vanilla beans and cherries with an ABV:5.6 % and an IBU:23.
