Buchannan Pass Trail west of Peak to Peak Hwy and Peaceful Valley. Park on highway. Skirt Camp Dick on the south and continue on trail to Indian Peaks Wilderness boundary.  

It's 5 miles one way to the wilderness boundary. We will not cross into Indian Peaks Wilderness as we do not have a wilderness permit.

If the group doesn't want to go to the boundary, we'll turn back at 4 miles.

Bring snowshoes, poles, microspikes and strapping to tie your snowshoes to your pack.

Plan for a 4-5 hour hike with lunch on the trail.

Coffee stop in Ned after the hike.
