Details

This is a scenic hike that is not terribly difficult, although you may want to bring microspikes in case there is ice on the steps leading to the summit.  From the summit ridge, you have nice views west to the Indian Peaks and nice views of Boulder as well.  We start at NCAR, take Mesa Trail to Bear Canyon, then Green Bear, and finally Green Mountain West Ridge.  From the summit, we just retrace our steps to the trailhead.  These trails have been officially reopened, but do have some lingering damage from the flooding.  This is not a technically difficult hike and there is a trail the entire way.



Notes

Trip completed without incident.  Bridge on mesa trail is still missing and significant erosion on Bear Canyon trail


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
