Browns Canyon

View from turn-around point, photo Logan Myers

As a joint GARNA-Friends of Browns Canyon event, Logan Myers, GARNA Board member and Friends of Browns Canyon Board Vice President will lead a guided hike in the newly designated Browns Canyon National Monument entering from the Turret (southern) side. The hike will take participants down Cat Gulch to Stafford Gulch, continuing down under the “Reef”, past an old cabin to the rim of the Narrows. There the group will take a break here and turn around and reverse the route. The approximate elevation gain/loss is 600 ft and it is 5 miles round trip. The hike will take approximately 1-1.5 hours down and 1.5-2.5 hours back up. The hike is characterized as moderate and primarily follows an old road and some single track trail. There is no-off trail hiking.

Logan has lived in the county for about 12 years and currently resides in Buena Vista. He has worked with American Whitewater and TU and was instrumental in designing the BV disk golf course. He is an avid paddler and overall outdoor recreator. Logan participated in the GARNA photo contest and won 3 out of the 4 categories. He has scouted the route and is looking forward to sharing this exploration of Browns Canyon National Monument with the group.

Cost: $5 for GARNA members, $8 for non members.
