David and I got up early this morning (5:30 am) to hike the trail from the Redstone Campground to the Filoha Meadows Reserve. It was a beautiful cool morning and not even the birds were up until we made our return hike back to the car. Filoha Meadows is a protected area and only the Roaring Fork Conservancy tours can walk around the area. We have been on two of the tours since we moved to Colorado and loved them. The public can hike into the area from July to Sept 30 as long as they stay on the old railroad trail which is a very easy level hike with a few stone covered areas and some sandy areas. Be sure to be prepared for lots of pesky mosquitoes in the meadows area. The many different grasses, flowers, and beautiful scenes here make the hike worth it though.
