Details

From east side of Guenella Pass Road (9,400 ft. elevation)  the Trail parallels Scott Gomer Creek north  and east   though surrounding forest.  Beyond first mile and creek crossing,  the trail begins to climb steadily through the trees  until intersecting with the Rosalie Trail.  Beautiful picturesque open  terrrain once  the  high altitude meadows are reached.   Beaver ponds, shrubs and ground cover all come together to to present  awesome views.   Moderate pace, with stops to enjoy the views.   Guests are welcome, but must be able to easily hike distance and be comfortable at higher elevation. 



Notes

Coffee Stop at Harris Park Conaco.   

 

Please consider on CMC trips when making a potty stop at a public establishement, it is considerate to buy something small, beverage, etc.  Don't think there is a law saying you have to, but proprieters have to maintain their restrooms, pay for water , electric and other overhead.  



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
