Longview

Longview is a vista that provides a panoramic view of Colorado’s Continental Divide, including 13,911 foot Mount Meeker. The short half mile hike will lead you to one of the most spectacular views in the entire state!

Longview

Homestead

The Cruther’s Homestead Cabin was originally constructed in 1901. Cal-Wood’s staff brings pioneer history lessons alive here! In 2008, the Homestead Cabin was designated a Historical Landmark by Boulder County and underwent extensive structural and cosmetic renovations.

Homestead

Solitude Point

Solitude Point is relatively short, but strenuous hike from the Lodge, and boasts two spectacular views: one of the plains to the east – and the other of the Continental Divide to the west.

Solitude Point

Mica Mine

The Mica Mine was originally mined by Ellery Cruthers in the 1940’s. Today, it is one of our favorite destinations to teach about geology and Colorado mining history.

The Upper Pond

The Upper Pond is located beside Cal-Wood’s Main Parking Lot. It is home to diverse populations of macroinvertebrates – as well as rainbow trout and mistakenly introduced gold fish!

Upper Pond

The Lower Pond

The Lower Pond is just a short hike from the Calvert Lodge. It is home to a diverse population of macroinvertebrates and amphibians, including Colorado’s native Tiger Salamander.

Lower Pond

8125

8125 is the highest point on Cal-Wood’s property, named for its elevation. The strenuous hike is well worth the view from the peak.

Tipi

The Native American Tipi is another way that Cal-Wood brings history alive! Here students learn about the Arapahoe and Ute tribes that lived along the Front Range of Colorado. Students also have the opportunity to participate in hands-on activities such as fire building and other outdoor skills.

Campfire Circle

The Campfire Circle is a wonderful way to close an evening at Cal-Wood. Many groups use this area to tell stories, sing songs, and roast marshmallows.
