Notes

This is part of an on-going weekly training series to get you in shape to tackle your summer hiking, backpacking and peak bagging adventures.  For this series, for folks who want to climb their first 14'er, we'll be climbing Gray's Peak in late June.  There are a series of progressive hikes: Mt Morrison weekly training hikes, Lost Creek Wilderness one Saturday, Mt. Sniktau one Saturday, and then Gray's Peak one Saturday with a Friday night car camp. Last year we had (3) who wound up climbing their first 14'er.  They were happy!

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
