Meeting Location:
Saturday 10am Woolley Mammoth(I70 exit 259) Section HH

Trip:
Starting from the traditional trailhead we will head up the butler gulch trail to tree line. Head off trail to the continental divide trail, around butler gulch over to jones pass around to the west fork valley then down into the valley follow it out to the jones pass road then out back to the cars.

Things to note:
I am very familiar with this area, but I am always up for a little exploring, there is no true exposure, but there is some steeper off trail nothing over class 2. I am starting this trip later to avoid I70 traffic, We will do our best be back to the cars by 6ish so pace will be a little faster and fewer stops than normal. Open hike strong unrated hikers are welcome password is billings, make the choose yourself.

Extra stuff to bring: Headlamp and extra batteries, gators as the forecast calls for a little snow. a pole is highly recommended for the off trail downhill. seems funny we will most likely leave them in the car but snowshoes that can be strapped to your pack.
