Tracks, Signs & Snowshoes


Can you tell tracks of Rover the dog from Wylie Coyote? How about a bobcat from a fox? This backcountry experience will teach you how to interpret the trails left by Colorado’s resilient winter wildlife. Hear the story of how Lynx were re-introduced into our mountains, and what their tracks have in common with their iconic prey—the snowshoe hare. While seeing wildlife on the trail is a rare treat, the winter landscape opens up their stories for all to read, and this program will give you the tools to become a tracker yourself.

$35 (transportation from Walking Mountains Science Center), $30 (meet at the trailhead). Ages 12+
