Details

These peaks are located on the continental divide on the east side of Berthoud Pass.  We will start off and head for Mt. Flora.  We will then continue after a summit break to Mt. Eva.  We will then return and have the option to summit up Colorado Mines Peak depending on the weather and the group.  

We will also have an LIT on the trip.



Notes

Good hike up to Mt. Flora. Took a little break. Then continued on the ridge and dropped down to the saddle between Eva and Flora. This is a drop of about 600 feet. We had to regain this to summit Eva. There is an old structure near the summit. Took a Lunch Break on Mt. Eva.

Returned the same route. Chose not to attempt Colorado Mines Peak due to thunderstorms in the area. Good thing too because it started raining just after we returned to the vehicles at Berthoud Pass.

10.1 miles
3,329 feet of net elevation gain.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
