It’s official! Our group will share all proceeds from tips with Friends of the Peak at Trails End, 3103 W. Colorado Ave. during the whole month of August. This is a great opportunity to obtain some revenue and get some publicity for our group while partnering with a local business. Thanks Trails End! See below for our schedule. Come visit us, bring some friends and catch up with what’s going on with our outdoor recreational community!
You are invited this August to our weekly meet-up dialogs with our outdoor recreational community. Throughout the month, Friends of Red Rock Canyon (FoRRC), Friends Of The Peak (FOTP) and Manitou Trail CATS are hosting short talks and Q & A discussions of issues various user groups have about the open space and trails in the Pikes Peak region. We invite you to come and share your joy, concerns and passion about climbing, hiking, biking, trail building, and running and/or general outdoor recreation.
Trails End Tap Room, the first self-pour taproom in Colorado Springs, has generously offered to donate all tips in the month of August to support the work of FOTP and FoRRC. Trails End is an adventurer’s basecamp with indoor topo maps, trail conditions, indoor and outdoor bike work stands and indoor bike racks. It has oversized bathrooms for changing into gear and all the self-serve craft beer, cider and wine you want to cap off your adventure.
Manitou CATS, FoRRC and FOTP will have a table at the following dates to talk with people about our projects and Q & A about what’s happening with our open spaces and parks. The briefings outlined below will start about 5:55 pm will be followed by a question, answer and discussion period led by leaders of each user group. Stop by – we would love to visit with old and new friends!
