5/21/24: This was my inaugural hike as a trip leader with the CMC. I took a very solid group of mostly recent retirees (party of 8) up Mount Falcon via Turkey Trot from the Morrison TH. We made good time up to the plateau, explored around the Summer White House Site a bit, and then had lunch back down at the pavillion. We made good work getting back to the TH via Castle Trl as some light graupel at the top turned to light rain for most of the trek back before opening up as we were leaving. It’s official!
