Details

From Deer Ridge Junction take N Deer Mtn trail and ascend the NE slope to the summit. Descend the sunny west  and north slopes back to the trailhead viewing preventative burn mitigation. Great views of Estes Park and Rocky Mtn National Park. .2 miles each way near summit of boulder steps up and down.  This can be a sunny/hot trail.

Notes

Look for orange CMC cap.  I will be at the far end (away from the buildings) of the parking lot on Highway US 36 in the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center parking lot..  There is a restroom at the Visitors Center (no privies on the mountain).

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
