Details

This week we'll take our group up Highway 285 to Staunton Park in Shaffer's Crossing, to see many Aspen turned to Gold and many still on the way.  



We'll hike a 7.7 mile loop and visit an old Mill site.   The elevation is starting at 8180',climbing to 9440', for a gain of 1260'.  We hit our high point at 4.5 miles where we find the perfect lunch spot and a beautiful view.
