 This is a leader-in-training hike for Carolyn Hammond.  Please contact Carolyn for questions or to register at: email:  <carolynhammond@comcast.net> 



Details

 This hike is to replace the  originally-scheduled "Granite Pass Traverse", which may not be feasible due to the extensive road damage resulting from recent flooding.  This new destination will start at the Signal Mountain TH on the Pingree Park road (Larimer County roads 63E and 44H).   The hike will follow the trail along Pennock Creek to treeline, then continue for about 0.5 mile on the alpine to the summit of Signal Mountain (11,262').   If weather permits, we will continue south for 0.5 mile to South Signal Mountain at the northeast boundary of Rocky Mountain National Park as well. Above treeline, this hike offers tremendous views of near and distant peaks and the Colorado-Wyoming plains.  There may be some snow cover, which can enhance the scenery even more.  Participants should be prepared for potential wintry weather.  No on-line registrations are permitted.  Please register with  Carolyn Hammond, who is the leader-in-training.  Please contact Carolyn for questions or to register at: email:  <carolynhammond@comcast.net> .
