Details

Hike in Eagle Nest Wilderness, starting at Ryan Gulch trail head. Follow this trail N.W.to the Gore Range trail, then W. and S. to Eccles Pass. Our views from Eccles Pass will make this a perfect location for lunch. The group will loop back S.E., then N. via the Meadow Creek and Lily Pad Lake trails. EXPECT A LONG DAY and carrying extra water wouldn't be a half bad idea!   



Notes

Don't forget to bring your camera because you'll regret it if you forget to bring it! There might also be a stop afterwards if my plans should happen to change. This will be discussed as the trip becomes closer. Note: This trip I typically lead one week earlier, but due to the heavy snow pack this season, I've scheduled it a week later to hopefully eliminate most of the problems with any remaining snow.
