Geology hike at Navajo State Park

Glenn Raby has been sharing his knowledge of Archuleta County’s geology for many years.

On Saturday, July 31, he will guide his first geology hike in Navajo State Park. Raby and Navajo State Park invite the public to discover the park’s geologic past and learn how the mountains came to be, as well as share a hands-on walk through time. Participants can bring a small magnifying glass if they wish. Although the trail is moderate with some shade, comfortable hiking shoes and water bottles are recommended. According to Raby, this special program is for all curious adults and inquisitive kids.

Interested hikers should meet at the Navajo State Park Visitor Center at 9 a.m. on July 31.

A $6 Colorado State Parks day pass or annual pass is required on all vehicles. Navajo State Park encourages Pagosa Springs residents to carpool and join Glenn for his first geology hike in the park.
