Fort Collins Young Adventurers. This group aims to bring younger CMC members together to foster friendships among those that share similar experiences both in the mountains and in their everyday walks of life.


This backpacking trip will be a great adventure in beautiful Wild Basin (of RMNP). The designated site reserved is Pear Creek, just east of Pear Lake (7 mi and 2,100' to the site). On Friday, we'll pack in 7 miles to the site, set up camp, and have some time to do as we choose. On Saturday, our options for exploration will be one or more of the close by peaks (Copeland, Ogalalla, Isolation, etc.) and/or the lakes (Hutcheson, Cony, Bluebird, Lark, Pipit, etc.). Similar options for Sunday, followed by packing out that afternoon/evening.

Note: exact destinations on Saturday and Sunday will be decided by the group. If there are two groups of 3, and at least two trip leaders, we'll also have the option of separating into two groups (which will not happen unless those conditions are present).

Bear canister required - can be rented rather inexpensively.

We'll share the cost of the permit for the site ($20 total).

FC Young Adventurers given preference; others may ask to be put on the wait list.
