This is the Ptarmigan Peak in Grand County, near Fraser. We will drive into the Fraser Experimental Forest and park at the gate where the road is now closed. After hiking 1.5 miles on the closed road we follow a trail to Bottle Pass at 11,400 feet. Ptarmigan Peak is above the pass to the left, Bottle Peak to the right. From Ptarmigan there are spectacular views of the Fraser Valley, the Indian Peaks to the east, and the Gore Range to the west. CHANGED TO CARPENTER PEAK IN ROXBOROUGH STATE PARK DUE TO SNOW CONDITIONS IN GRAND COUNTY.    


High clearance vehicles will handle a few rough spots in the forest road better than passenger cars.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
