This portion of the CT which makes its way over the Tenmile Range is steep and strenuous.  We should see flowers in the alpine tundra. This linear mountain range connects the  southern end of the Gore Range with the northern end of the Mosquito Range.  It is named for the creek on its western boundary and is known for its sequentially numbered peaks.

We'll walk through sagebrush meadows and lodgepole pines on the way to Miners Creek.  We ascend steeply beyond timberline to a small shallow saddle diagonally across the range. The trail takes us between Peak 5 and Peak 6 which is Breckenridge's newest ski area.

Trail ends at the Wheeler Flats TH parking area at Copper Mountain.


Bring a substantial lunch, plenty of water, wind and/or rain gear.  And traction for your boots.  It's very possible that we will encounter lingering snowfields up high.  Total time on the trail will be approximately 9 hours which will give us time for a couple of breaks and lunch.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
