For RMOTHG members only:  We'll follow the meandering Horseshoe Trail for 1.8 miles at a casual pace. The trail is rocky,  but gentle with ups that flatten past boulders, aspen, pine, to Mule Deer Trail where we'll walk to Fraser's Meadow at 2 mi, an historical site and meadow rimmed with aspen. Then we'll walk back on Mule Deer almost a mile to Rim Meadow filled with aspen and a path to the boulder field where we'll have lunch with views of the park below and mountains in the distance. After lunch, we'll loop down Bear Paw  Trail to join Horseshoe for the trip back to TH. Optional after hike stop in Golden.


Look for email Tuesday night with final information. We require poles, yaktraks and/or microspikes, the usual ten essentials, and readiness for winter weather changes. Please email Elaine Kallos if you have medical issues that might affect how you or we do on the hike. Again, look for Tuesday night email with our post-scout conditions notes.  Thanks, and see you in Golden Wednesday!  Elaine Kallos
