Free hike series to start Sunday in Edwards

AVON - Wilderness Workshop is leading a series of hikes this summer into wilderness lands currently being considered for protection by Sen. Mark Udall.

In Eagle County, the hike series begins this weekend with a guided hike on Sundayinto the West Lake Creek area. That same day there is also a hike in the Seven Castles area, near Basalt.

"The wildflowers are beginning to come out, and the backcountry is in all its early summer glory," said Susie Kincade, a local wilderness supporter who is leading the hike in the West Lake Creek area. "These hikes are a great way for people to have a first-hand look at these beautiful wild lands that are being considered for protection."

All of the guided hikes throughout summer are free, but people need to register in advance. Hikes are scheduled in Eagle, Summit and Pitkin counties.
