EAGLE TRAIL 1 mile marker

The 1-mile marker on the Shelfton Trail, erected by Ben Mason and his Scouting friends.

The Community Trails Committee will host a 3-mile hike on the Shelton Trail starting at 8 a.m. on National Take-a-Hike Day, Saturday, Nov. 17.

The Shelton Trail starts at Base Line and Weaver Street in East Highlands Ranch. It was selected to showcase an Eagle Scout project by Highland’s Ben Mason, who installed mile markers and trail identification signs.

The trail travels 2.25 miles from Base Line to Bacon Lane. From there, it travels three-quarters of a mile on the sidewalk on Bacon Lane and Highland Avenue back to Base Line. The elevation gain is 230 feet.

Those looking for a longer hike can continue on the Redhill Trail traveling southwest behind neighborhoods and Cram Elementary School, emerging at the bank of Plunge Creek. From there, the trail travels east for a total of 2.4 miles and an elevation gain of 160 feet.

The event is expected to end by 10 a.m.
