Details

    After setting up a short car shuttle at our ending location, the group will ascend the Meadow Creek Trail west to just below Eccles Pass. At this location, we'll then pick up the Gore Range Trail and follow it generally south down to the North Ten Mile Creek Trail. From this trail, we'll then head east back to the shuttle  vehicle.                                                          

Notes

I do expect some snow to be in this area, especially as we get closer to Eccles Pass and along the Gore Range Trail, but due to the heat wave the state will be experiencing this week, I don't believe that it will be too terribly bad. If the snow is worse than expected, we'll just reverse our direction back to the vehicles. Carrying Yak Traks on this trip could be helpful if we should run into any icy conditions.
Expect a stop after the hike is completed for some food and drink!
