Details

This is a triple joint event (SM-CWF-DN).  Trek the St. Vrain Mtn Trail.  The trail parallels rippling Rock Creek in a lovely conifer forest.  The trail opens up to an elegant valley.  Along the way observe the multiple snags with bird condominium nests made by bird species that are predisposed to nesting in dead trees.  The saddle between St Vrain Mtn and Meadow Mtn above timberline affords panoramic views of dramatic mountain landmarks and glaciers on the Continental Divide.  Enjoy the vast array of alpine wildflowers along the way.
