Details

This trip will start at the Glacier Gorge trailhead in RMNP.  We will follow the trail to Alberta Falls and continue on to the North Longs Peak trail.   We will follow this for about 2 miles, then head off trail to the north ridge of Storm Peak.  The descent will go east to connect with the Longs Peak trail, then continue to Granite Pass, where we will follow the North Longs Peak trail back to the Glacier Gorge trailhead.  This trip will involve considerable class 2 rock scrambling and bushwhacking, but will offer superb views of the area.  Prepare for a long and strenuous day.  Must contact John Wullschleger (see above) to register. 

Notes

Trip logistics will be sent to participants a few days ahead of the trip.
