Details

This trip is over one of the most beautiful sections of the Colorado Trail.  We will spend most of the trip above 12,000 feet crossing Snow Mesa.   I'm planning on leaving after work on Friday and staying in a hotel in Gunnison.  I've arranged for a shuttle between Spring Creek Pass and Eddiesville.  We will need to be in Lake City by 9:30 am on Saturday to meet the shuttle driver.  She will take us to Spring Creek Pass to drop off a car and then shuttle us to the start of the backpack at Eddiesville.  Based on her estimate we will reach Eddiesville by 1:30 pm..  Once we reach the starting trail head we will go in 5-7 miles and camp at one of the many camping spots along the trail.  The next day we will continue on and camp near Middle Mineral Creek (about a 11 mile day).  On the last day we will hike out to ending point Spring Creek Pass  about 10 miles.  My expectation is to be out around 2 pm on Monday.  So we should be able to make it back to the Front Range around 9-10 pm.



Notes

The cost for the shuttle will be $240 + tip divided by the number of participants.  Most likely $60-$80 ea. Most likely you would be able to share the cost of a room in Gunnison (approximately $50).  The other cost for the trip would be a split in the gas.  You are free to make other arrangements to get to/from Lake City.  You just need to be there by 9 am or so.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
