July's Liturgical Hike

Hi All,

If you haven't joined us before this is the perfect hike to begin your liturgical hiking career.


On Sunday July 6th we will hike the Norski Trail, which is 14 miles up Hyde Park Road (Hwy. 475) just before you reach the Santa Fe Ski Basin parking lot.

Norski Trail is truly an easy hike with very gentle hills and is relatively short too, only about two miles. The trail itself is very "soft" and easy to walk on and goes through beautiful Aspen and Fir stands with lovely wildflowers all around. Because this trail is shorter and easier (and we are leaving earlier, see below) I would think you can be finished by noon if you wish.

We will meet in the St. Bede's parking lot at 8:30am (note the earlier time) and leave there at 8:45am.

Here is a link to the Forest Service web page about the trail -

Blessings and I look forward to seeing you on the 6th,

P.S. Please be sure to bring your own water and a snack or lunch. Also, I'm not sure this is the best hike for some of our more energetic canine friends and ask that if you bring your dog you be prepared to keep him/her on a leash and/or well controlled.
