— A small Colorado town’s ranger district is hosting a live-streamed hike on a mountain range near its border with New York.
The Rock Mountain Ranger District is hosting the “Cascade Day” hike at the site of a railroad tunnel near the city of Cottontale.
“Cascades are so big,” said Craig Siegel, who heads the Rock Mountain District ranger district.
“We get to the top of them at some of the steepest parts of the mountain.
If you’re on a good day you can walk up the mountain to a summit that’s just up there.
We’re just trying to provide people with a good experience on a very scenic hike.”
The ranger district’s Mountain Air Ranger District, which oversees the trails and other trails in the area, is also hosting the hike.
Rangers are also providing a free trail guide and food to the event.
There will be no water, and the trails will be closed to vehicles.
