Details

Carpool from the Wooly Mammoth Park and Ride to the Chief Hosa Exit, before Evergreen, CO.  Trek across the Beaver Brook Trail with breath taking views of Clear Creek, Highway 6, hundreds of feet below.  We passed charming Charm Springs to the junction of the Bald Mountain and Beaver Brook Trails.  We had a wonderful lunch break even as we observed the changing nature of the cloud formations.  Many butterflies accompanied us throughout the hike even as scant wildlife was observed.  The South and East exposures were cool while the West and North-facing exposures became warmer as the day progressed.  Recommend all trekkers bring 2L liquids to remain effectively hydrated; 3L is too much weight as the trail gambles up and down into the canyons.

Notes

Contact trip leader with questions, concerns or expectations.  Guests welcome. A - level hikers especially welcomed!
