Details

    Hike in Eagle Nest Wilderness, starting at Ryan Gulch trail head. Follow this trail N.W.to the Gore Range trail, then W. and S. to Eccles Pass. Our views from Eccles Pass will make this a perfect location for lunch. The group will loop back S.E., then N. via the Meadow Creek and Lily Pad Lake trails. EXPECT A LONG DAY!!   

Notes

In the past, half of the group tends to run out of water a few miles from the end of the trip, so if your water requirements are high, please plan accordingly and carry additional water! Also, plan for a long day with a stop afterwards.
