Dakota Ridge Trail
Tue, Nov 29, 2022

Hiking – Dakota Ridge Trail

This trip is for RMOTHG members only. Enjoy this short but intense high ridge-top walk with spectacular views. Because of possible snow and ice, at least carrying our microspikes are a must. Not a good trail for snowshoes due to narrowness of the trail and frequent small rock steps and scrambles.

Join CMC Press authors Alan Apt and Kay Turnbaugh on Tuesday, November 29, at 6:00 pm for a free online Snowshoe and Ski Touring Clinic. Learn snowshoeing and ski touring basics, including how to choose equipment and basic tips and techniques. See beautiful photos of the more than 80 trails from their books, Ski Touring Routes: Colorado's Front Range and Snowshoe Routes: Colorado's Front Range.
