Hiking groups are abundant in Telluride, Colorado. Earlier this week, I went with my family to join a local hiking group on the Hawn Mountain Ridge Loop Hike. The hike is located within Grey Head, and includes the spectacular Stairway to Heaven walkway, descending down a massive scree field.
Our large group, getting ready to hike.
On top of the ridge, the scree starts gradually.
Descending down the steeper sections, right before the main section of the rock walkway.
The Stairway to Heaven walkway is a pleasure to hike down – it switch backs through a rugged scree field, providing stable, relatively even footing all the way down.
