We will meet at 2:45pm @ Safeway W.CO/31st St. Friday afternoon and carpool to Glenwood Springs. We will share costs for a 3Q bedroom cabin and one 2Q room at Cedar Lodge (breakfast included), head to Marble Saturday morning and drive into Lead King Basin. Vehicles need to be high clearance 4WD.  We will hike to Geneva Lake through fields of wildflowers and numerous waterfalls, camp at the Lake and hike out Sunday morning.  We could also do some side trips on our way home if the group would like to such as: Driving to Maroon Bells, stopping at Woody Creek Tavern or hiking to Hanging Lake.  We will discuss carpool on the return based on post trip activities; who wants to hang out and who wants to go straight back to Co.Sprgs. Geneva Lake trail description to be posted later. 


If you took the backpacking course, this trip would be a great introduction into backpacking.  Some knowledge of backpacking is required. Open to CMC members only.  Although, the hike is only 2 miles in, the trail is a fairly steep climb to 11,000 ft. elevation. Must be in good physical shape. If you are not used to backpacking/hiking at higher elevations, please do not sign up for this trip.
