Capitol Creek Ranch snowshoe hike

Join Roaring Fork Conservancy and Pitkin County Open Space & Trails for a free snowshoe hike through the Capitol Creek Ranch riparian area from 4-7 p.m. Tuesday, March 13. Wander past beaver ponds and through aspen forests while exploring the history of the property. Capitol Creek Ranch, an iconic property that is protected by conservation easement within the Pitkin County Open Space and Trails program, was originally owned by the late Bob Child, who was integral in many significant conservation efforts in the Roaring Fork Valley starting as early as the 1960s.
