Details

For members of RMOTHG and guests.  Snowshoe the DeLonde and Blue Bird Loop trails at Caribou Ranch (Boulder County Open Space)

 

Snowshoe at Caribou Ranch, just north of Nederland off the Peak-to-Peak highway.  Snowshoe from the main parking area on the DeLonde Trail to the Blue Bird Loop Trail which loops (as in its name) around the edges of the property; with good conditions, take the spur to the old Blue Bird mine complex.  Round trip 4.5-5.0 miles, elevation gain 300'.  There's enough snow (nice and dry, no ice) to get back into snowshoeing although it's a bit thin over the rocky section in the part of the Blue Bird Trail that parallels North Boulder Creek.

 


 



Notes

Optional refreshment stop after the snowshoe at "The Spot" - in Golden off CO-93

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
