Since the weather was really nice today (upper 50’s) we decided to do a hike in the Eldorado National Forest. The hike is called the Walker Ranch Loop Trail and is 7.62 miles long. Seems like a piece of cake but you have to remember that we are in Colorado and there are mountains. Normally a 6+ mile hike would take about 2 hours. Well, this took 4 hours and 50 minutes. We had to stop a couple of times to rehydrate and eat. The walk started at 7,200 feet and we ascended/descended 1,500’ along the way. Really peaceful and nice scenery.
