ROAD TRIP: Heads or Tails? If there’s a fork in the road…take it.
GO NORTH, CHASE A FOX
Breakaway—the time has come for you. The sun is out, the sky is cloudless and ever-so blue, the gas tank is full and you’ve decided the time is right to free yourself from the shackles of your self-imposed stay-at-home banishment. The open road is beckoning and there are decisions to be made. You’ve hopped on I-25… now what? The golf clubs are nestled in the trunk, also yearning to be free—answering the call, you head north, toward Red Feather Lakes, to The Golf Club at Fox Acres. At 8,300 feet above sea level, your head will be clear and ready to take on the beautiful, 6,500-yard John Cochran-designed course, spread out over 460 acres. golfclubatfoxacres.com
Speaking of acreage, after your round, here’s another appealing option—hit the backcountry near Red Feather Lakes at the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests. Available exploration options include Cache la Poudre and the Santiago Mill. More adventures are being added daily; the U.S. Forest Service has an online story map with the latest info. fs.usda.gov
