Details

Traveling along West Chicago Creek for about a mile, the trail climbs steadily through a large grove of aspen trees. The second and third miles are rockier but less steep. When the trail ends at Hells Hole, the area opens to an alpine willow grove. Grey Wolf Mountain stands before you like a giant backdrop. Several twisted, 2000 year old Bristlecone pines are found at trail's end, including John's favorite, old Bristlecone.  



Notes

New members are welcome. This is not an easy climb but suitable for those already in fairly good condition.  




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
