Everyone will meet at Spring Valley School at 9 a.m., and the tour will start near Fine Gold Creek, will include great views of the volcanic mesas and then move up the Byway for views of domes, volcanism and more, ending at Mile High Vista.

“It’s guaranteed you will leave with new appreciation about the geologic history of our area,” say organizers.

Some easy hiking is possible. Please bring a lunch and water.
